The Pima County Board Supervisors are weighing on a Senate Bill 1062, at least informally.

Four out of the five Supervisors have said they are opposed to legislation, urging Gov. Jan Brewer to veto the legislation.

Supervisor Richard Elías said on Facebook the bill "authorizes overt discrimination against gays and lesbians" and "once again makes our state a national embarrassment."

"I urge Governor Jan Brewer to veto this dreadful measure and help us put a stop to such outrageous acts of a mean-spirited and out-of-control Arizona Legislature," Elías wrote. 

Backing Elías are Supervisors Ramón Valadez, Sharon Bronson and Ray Carroll.  

Supervisor Ally Miller did not return a call seeking comment.
