TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Controversial Senate Bill 1062 sparked protests throughout the state today.

The bill has made national headlines, in part because the protests are moving online.

The website www.sb1062.org leads to a Change.org petition urging Gov. Jan Brewer to veto the proposed bill. It was created a few days ago and has more than 64,000 signatures.

Based on the response, many are eager to speak out against the bill, but not many people are publicly showing support for SB 1062.

Azpolicy.org, created by a conservative lobbying group, encourages bill supporters to sign a pre-written letter to be sent to a state senator or representative, according to the website.

The website does not say how many people have sent the letter.
