TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

As controversy continues over whether Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer will pass a controversial bill, the NFL began investigating necessary steps to move next year's Super Bowl game out of Phoenix if SB 1062 becomes law in our state, according to Sports Illustrated.

The 2015 Super Bowl game is currently scheduled to be played in Glendale at the University of Phoenix Stadium.

According to the report, the NFL said it doesn't want to move the Super Bowl out of Arizona, but it has to begin preparing for that possibility.

Back in 1993, the NFL moved the Super Bowl out of Phoenix in reaction to Arizona voting down an effort to establish a state holiday in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr.

Gov. Brewer has until Saturday to decide whether to approve or veto the bill allowing businesses to deny service based on religious beliefs.
