Gov. Brewer Does the Right Thing for the Wrong Reason

Gov. Brewer vetoed a bill that would have increased the state's tax credit for private school donations.  She claims that it would unbalance the budget.  While this is true, and it is a good thing to not add more of a burden on our state budget, the fact is that a lot of this money goes to religious schools and that is a direct subsidy of government money for a religious purpose.    Either way, it's a good thing she vetoed it.

She also vetoed a religious liberty bill.  This bill had some serious potential for unintended consequences.  Another good move on Brewer's part.
