Arizona legislators are at least temporarily setting aside Gov. Jan Brewer's suggestion that lawmakers consider changing parts of the state's controversial immigration law.

Brewer floated the idea of making "tweaks" shortly after a federal judge blocked implementation of numerous provisions.

Key legislative aides say the idea has been shelved for now, mainly because of the state's pending appeal of the judge's ruling.

Brewer didn't suggest specific changes but expressed willingness to consider changes in response to the preliminary injunction issued July 28 by U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton.

Legislative leaders then had aides review the situation before concluding that no immediate action should be taken.
