From the Ashes in Utah Comes Hope and Resilience…

The people of Utah are fighting back.

A group of citizens has filed an application seeking to have HB477, a controversial bill restricting access to many government records, go to a referendum.

The group, not affiliated with any formal organization, submitted the paperwork to the lieutenant governor’s office Thursday, according to Janalee Tobias, a longtime gun-rights and open-space advocate.

Such an application can be filed no later than five days after the end of the legislative session. But Tobias said the group was also trying to act before Gov. Gary Herbert signed SB165, which would ban electronic petition signatures.

Tobias said her group was not partisan and included a Democrat with whom she disagreed on most other issues.

“He hates guns, I love guns, but we’re both here together on this issue,” she said.
