SALT LAKE CITY (March 8, 2012) – Lawmakers in Utah continue to wrangle over a resolution condemning the detention provisions in sec. 1021 and 1022 of the National Defense Authorization Act.
Originally, SCR11 expressed “strong disapproval” of sections 1021 and 1022 of the NDAA, and called for the repeal or clarification of the offending provisions. Ultimately the Senate gutted the resolution through amendment, changing “strong disapproval” to “concern.” The amended bill also removed the call for repeal and stripped out language referring directly to the detention provisions in the NDAA.
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the Legislature of the State of Utah, the Governor concurring therein, urges the United States Congress to clarify Sections 1021 and 1022 of the 2012 NDAA…
The Senate passed this tepid resolution 28-0 on March 2, sending it to the House for consideration.Details
