This week on the hill Utah legislators declared that they are pro-graffiti, anti-American, and not smart enough to figure out the clocks on their VCR's.
Senators declared they are pro-graffiti when they voted down SB 107. The bill would have made carrying graffiti paraphernalia (spray paint, ladders, etc.) with the intent to use a crime. But because they voted it down it means that in Utah you are still free to walk around with spray paint...or a gun for that matter...in public.
A bill limiting the hours and days you can light off fireworks has already passed in the house and is under consideration in the Senate. If passed Utahns will no longer be able to celebrate their pride in America with overpriced fireworks at 3 o'clock in the morning. They will, however, be able to celebrate their pride in America on Chinese New Years.
And finally, have you ever shown up late to something because you forget to turn your clock forward in the Spring? Well, neither have I. But apparently Rep. Jim Nielson of Bountiful has. He proposed a bill that would take Utah off of Daylight Saving time. But members of the House Judiciary Committee must all have cell phones that automatically change because they voted down the bill 7-5.
And that's what happened this week on the hill.
