Rep. Urquhart- Stand Up Guy
State Of The Beehive and Democracy For Utah have referenced a New York Times article that talks about Utah's "Buttars v. Monkeys" bill. Thanks to Rep. Steve Urquhart (a biology major in college), the bill looks doomed. I was genuinely surprised to see this bill progress. I was not surprised to see Sen. Buttars propose it, because for a while he has been inspired by the frantic evangelical conservatives of other regions, but I really thought the bill would never make it out of committee. Then I thought it would never make it out of the Senate. I'm glad to see Rep. Urquhart standing up to a genuinely bad idea.
