FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. -- Dozens of residents in Flagstaff plan to protest legislation that would allow Arizona business owners to deny service to individuals on religious grounds.

The rally against Senate Bill 1062 is scheduled for 4 p.m. Sunday outside Flagstaff City Hall, and city officials expected to attend include City Councilwoman Celia Barotz.

Students from Northern Arizona University plan to march at 3 p.m. from the campus to join the demonstration.

Gov. Jan Brewer is likely to decide next week whether to sign the bill. Supporters said it protects religious freedom. Opponents said it could harm the state's economy and image.

Protesters also plan to voice their opposition against House Bill 2192, which would ban immigrants in the country illegally from using any public resources such as public restrooms and roads.
