In a 19-9 vote Wednesday, the Arizona Senate voted to approve the amended contraception bill, known as House Bill 2625.
The bill now heads to Gov. Jan Brewer for final approval. There is no word on when Brewer will sign the bill since she put a moratorium on bills unrelated to the budget.
Under the new wording HB 2625 would allow any business that is "religious minded" to deny birth-control coverage to women.
Proponents of the bill say it protects religious freedom, while opponents said it discriminates against women.
