Passed: HB 219 - Symbols of Honor
The House today passed Carl Wimmer's HB 219 which designates the Browning M1911 as the symbolic State Firearm.
Since John Browning has left such a legacy in Ogden, the State, and the Nation, I voted in the affirmative in honor of his contribution to our community and country.
NOTE: Be sure to click on the bill link to discover what our State vegetable, fruit, fossil, song, hymn, folk dance and other obscure designations are. Keep in mind that although I voted in the affirmative on this bill you won't find me occupying the House's time by proposing this kind of legislation.
