The Darkness is Strong With Them, Young Jedi…

Wow. Just wow.

After being hammered by nearly two weeks of bad press and complaints from angry constituents, Gov. Gary Herberton Monday his intention to call a special session for Friday to quickly repeal a controversial change to Utah’s open records law.

But Senate President Michael Waddoups said Monday evening that the Senate would not go along, potentially derailing the repeal, which House Republicans had already endorsed earlier in the day.

Waddoups said he hadn’t talked to a single Republican senator who supported immediate repeal of HB477, which made a series of changes to Utah’s open-records law.

“I’m guessing [the governor will] have to get a Democrat to sponsor the [repeal] bill in the Senate,” Waddoups said. Democrats hold only seven of the 29 Senate seats, where 15 votes are required to pass any bill.
