Governor Issues Supplemental Proclamation for Special Legislative Session

SALT LAKE CITY – Today Governor Gary R. Herbert signed a supplemental proclamation to add an item to be discussed in a special legislative session tomorrow at 12:30 p.m.

The proclamation reads, “”Whereas the undersigned has since been informed of the need to include an additional item of business for consideration in this First Special Session; Now therefore, I, Gary R. Herbert, Governor of the State of Utah, but virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the State of Utah, do by this Proclamation include the following item for Legislative action:

7. To consider modifying all code sections amended by H.B. 155, Federal Law Enforcement Amendments (2013 General Session), in order to reverse all changes made by that H.B. 155.

This item appears on the call at the request of the bill sponsor.

Because this notification was sent to the Legislature less than 48 hours in advance of the designated time (July 17, 12:30 p.m.), each body of the Legislature must agree with a two-thirds majority vote to address the matter.
