Arizona Governor Vetoes HB 2230 During Meeting with Sodhi Family
SALDEF Commends Sodhi Family, Local Community, and Arizona Governor
May 2, 2011: During a meeting with the family of Balbir Singh Sodhi, Arizona Governor Jan Brewer vetoed HB 2230 on Friday, April 29, 2011. The family, who had requested the meeting with the Governor, is overjoyed that the plaque listing the name of Mr. Sodhi will not be removed from the state’s 9/11 memorial. The memorial commemorates Mr. Sodhi’s death on September 15, 2001, as the first individual to be murdered as a result of post-9/11 backlash.
