According to Ethan Millard, HB139 is dead. However, with the Utah Legislature it isn’t over until it’s over. This is a good sign, thanks to everyone who helped fight this legislation. Thanks to Representative Daw for listening to my and others concerns about the technical problems.
The informal meeting held Thursday on HB139 was the most level-headed meeting I’ve had the pleasure to attend at the Capitol. Thank you to all who attended. Representative Daw acknowledged a number of problems with the bill, but I do not know how that changes the status. I doubt proponents will let this drop so easily, regardless of the number of reasoned and thoughtful statements that were made in the meeting.
