AZ conservatives craft agenda for 2015 in closed-door meeting

 PHOENIX (AP) -- The social conservative group behind 2014 legislation that would have allowed people to refuse to serve gays in the name of religion has been meeting with Republican lawmakers to craft its 2015 agenda in the Arizona Legislature.
 
Cathi Herrod of the Center for Arizona Policy attended a meeting of lawmakers on the "Arizona Values Action Team" Monday at a state building near the Capitol.

An Associated Press reporter was barred from the closed-door lunch-hour gathering, but documents obtained by the AP show Herrod's group is again pushing religious rights, anti-abortion and school-choice legislation. The meeting and agenda outlined in the documents illustrate the clout Herrod has with Arizona lawmakers even after a national uproar among gay-rights supporters over last year's Senate Bill 1062.

Lawmakers who attended the meeting refused to discuss specifics.
