Rep. Steve Urquhart is doing a live blog today. In this, he talks about the House Law Enforcement and Criminal Justice Committee discussing SB98, Safety Belt Enforcement Amendments. He mentions all the different groups speaking in favor of approving the bill, such as: AAA, UDOT, PTA, Primary Children's and the Highway Patrol. He doesn't mention anyone speaking against the bill. He then mentions that the motion to pass the bill fails 6-4.
Am I the only one that finds this amazing? At least five major groups speak in favor of a bill with nobody mentioned as opposing the bill and the bill fails? Maybe the committee had further information that Rep. Urquhart didn't mention. Maybe one of the six who voted against it would like to clue us in on why? Maybe we will get more information when the minutes of the committee are posted.
