HB 227 Passes Utah House

Another step on the way to remove some incentive and enticement for illegal aliens to come or stay in Utah.

After being defeated on Thursday and reconsideration failing the following day, a veritable floods of Emails from the voters brought HB 227, Licensing Eligibility, back to the House floor under suspension of rules late Monday. 

An amendment was added, to offset some of the critcism of the bill, to clarify the "applicant" that must declare their "lawful presence in the United States" to apply "for a new business license issued by a municipality or a county."

With a good discussion, the vote continued its seesaw support finally passing 38-36-1 after a "call of the House" requiring absent Representatives to be found to vote.
