Mineweb reported that late on Thursday, Arizona Governor Jan Brewer vetoed a bill that would have allowed Arizona to recognize gold and silver as legal tender.

As quoted in the market news:

The Arizona Legislature could chose to over-ride the governor’s veto of SB 1439. However, a 2/3 vote is required by each chamber—House and Senate—to over-ride her veto. However, the Republican controlled Senate only approved the measure by an 18-10 vote.

Governor Brewer stated in a letter to Andy Biggs, the state’s senate president:

While I believe the concern over a devalued dollar as a result of an unsustainable federal deficit is justified, I am unable to support this legislation. I believe the provisions in this legislation need to be more carefully examined and there should be prior coordination with those government agencies tasked with the oversight of these transactions.
