Bloomington Chamber's Arizona Boycott 'Damaging To Local Business'

Last updated on Friday, June 11, 2010

(BLOOMINGTON, IN) - The Greater Bloomington Chamber of Commerce is calling for the city to rescind its boycott of Arizona businesses.

The boycott stems from the controversial immigration legislation passed by the Arizona State Legislature.

Bloomington Chamber President Christy Gillenwater says in part, "several of our members are receiving...calls that customers will boycott their business until the city removes its boycott on Arizona.

The action taken by city officials has become damaging to local businesses."
