Two bills revamping the election process of the State Board of Education received unanimous support of the state board. Rep. Menlove (Garland) and Rep. Moss ( SLC) are both pitching bills that change the nomination procedure from a committee to regular primaries and elections. Gov. Huntsman supports a change. Remember, we lost the incumbent Dr. Richard Sadler, WSU, and gained former Sen. Dave Thomas through the lack of good nominating process.
Parent's could be liable for their children's vandalism (gang related) through a bill sponsored by our own Sen. Jon Greiner. The legislation is primarily intended to target grafitti and other types of vandalism.
Stay tuned for more info. Rick
