I was set to be in attendance for the Governor’s signing of this joint resolution of the Utah State Legislature on Monday morning until a last minute family problem arose that prevented my going.  But I’m very pleased by the resolution and want people to be aware of it:




Congratulations to Senator Brian Shiozawa (R-Cottonwood Heights) and Representative Patricia Arent (D-Millcreek), the co-sponsors of SCR 6 (“Guarding the Civil Liberties and Freedoms For All American People”); to both houses of the State Legislature, which passed it unanimously; and to the Governor for signing.


I realize that it’s merely symbolic.  But the symbolism is deeply important, as the reaffirmation of traditional American principles.
