12. The Hotel and Lodging Association
is shaking in its boots:


"Right now our messaging is pretty simple: We're encouraging people not to boycott Arizona," says Debbie Johnson, president and CEO of Arizona Hotel & Lodging Association. "It's going to harm the 200,000 people who work in the hospitality industry in the state. Arizona has already been hit very hard over the last two years. We're just trying to protect the workers in the middle of this political decision."
