Daily Fix, Feb 7

by

The Daily Fix is back after a couple days off. Budget issues, feral cats and guns – and all strangely inter-related.

*The state school board puts the School for the Deaf and the Blind on the chopping block as a (short-sighted) way to save money. Are they serious or is it just political grandstanding? Daily Herald

*In case you missed it, the Utah House shoots down a bill that would require Utah’s innkeepers to allow guns in their rooms. Citing personal property rights for the hotel owners as well as a free market that is working, the bill carried by Rep Sandstrom was defeated 28-44. Trib

*The feral cat debate continues. Senator Dennis Stowell has introduced a bill that sets up sanctuary colonies for those cats, while Rep Curt Oda moves forward with his bill that allows individuals to decrease the surplus population. And just a reminder – make sure you follow @UTferalcat on Twitter. Des News

*Rep Bill Wright has a food freedom bill in response to the passage of S510 during the lame-duck session in DC. His bill proposes that if the food is grown, processed (or not), and sold in Utah, then it will not be subject to the extensive regulation by the FDA. Vendors at farmer’s markets are doing the happy dance. Trib

*And finally, just a personal note of thanks. Our family has been blessed by the outpouring of love and support on the passing of our daughter, Angelia. We knew when we adopted her that the day would come when she would leave us. The sorrow we feel now is more than offset by the joy we felt at having her in our home. ABC4 Des News

    Hooray for Bill Wright on the food freedom bill. How did you vote on the guns in hotels bill?

    Holly,

    Were you going to post your remarks from the funeral? Did I miss them?

    Thanks,
    Bradley
