    Re: Utah booster seat bill

    WAHOOO!!! Now I need to go check and see if my neighbor's dad was yea, nay or MIA.

    He was a yea. I knew I liked him.

    Do you know what substitutions were made? Was it like the House Law Enforcement committee where the one guy from Riverton (or was it Herriman?) who only agreed to vote for it if his district got $1000 in boosters?

    Yay! As soon as there is an article on it, let me know, so I can forward it to my IL's. How long before the governor looks at it and signs it into law...???

    Re: Utah booster seat bill

    As long as Gov. Huntsman signs it (which is almost a given), it will become law June 1. It is age 8 with an exemption for children over 4'9".

    Re: Utah booster seat bill

    I just got an email saying that our local SK coordinator was informed this morning that the booster seat law will go into effect on May 4th. This is a little sooner than we thought.
