State Senate President Russell Pearce denies that he has a list of people banned from the Senate building.

The Mesa Republican made the denial in remarks to the Senate on Monday when pressed by Democratic senators to explain the arrest Thursday of a Hispanic activist.

The activist was arrested when he returned to the Senate two days after a boisterous protest over immigration legislation.

Pearce said disruptive behavior won’t be tolerated. But he said that he empowers security officers to determine whether specific individuals should be barred for reasons of safety and decorum.
