Salt Lake Tribune: Bill: Government Lawyers Must Study Federalism

Rep. Ken Ivory: The best danged Utah legislative representation that corporate money can buy

Via a couple of "friends" of Weber County Forum :

"If the Utah legal community doesn't rise up against this then they deserve to sit in reeducation classes listening to some jackass from the Sutherland Institute lecture them on the virtues of nullification" - Patrick B.

Here's the gist from this morning's Salt Lake Tribune story:
Rep. Ken Ivory says lawyers for the state and local governments know too little about states’ rights to effectively battle the federal government. So he is moving to require them ­— and judges ­— to take an online seminar every two years to stress the "sovereignty, supremacy and jurisdiction" of states.

The House Government Operation Committee voted 7-1 Friday to pass his HB120 imposing that new rule and sent it to the full House.
Read Trib reporter Lee Davidson's full writeup, folks:
"You have to admit that Ivory works fast. On Jan 9th his "keepers" at ALEC posted model legislation entitled "Federalism Education Requirements for Public Attorneys" and here we are a little over 5 weeks later and it is before the Utah House. He represents his billionaire patrons quite well" - Donald A.:
