D'oh!!!


I owe everyone an apology. I reported yesterday that hb 425s01, legislation to legalize home brewing in Utah passed the house. When in fact it did not. Apparently, it went before the senate and was sent back to the rules committee, the legislative session ended before the bill could make it back to the senate for its final vote. Hopefully Rep. Christine Johnson will attempt to reintroduce the bill next year. Sorry for the misinformation.

Slightly wrong.. It was passed by the House. It was then introduced to the senate, then dumped to the Senates Rules committee, and langished.. as there wasn't anyone to champion it in the senate and put it back on the agenda. When the session ended at midnight 3/4, as a part of the session cleanup, a call to 'strike all remaning enacting clauses' was made. (which is a way to kill all bills without dealing with the content of the bills). Thus it was returned to the house to be filed as a failed bill.
