(See also S.B. 43)
An effective delay for two years. It leaves the "compromise" intact.
SB 43 and an identical piece in the house HB 281 doesn't change the deal. It just provides more time. It leaves 2014 SB 54 in place.
Count My Vote demanded that the Utah GOP needed to deal with Fire Fighters and Doctors and Mom's with sick kids being able to vote at our GOP neighborhood caucus night. If you remember their initial press conference, that was their focus.
It took longer than Count My Vote wanted to but at least the Utah GOP did fix it so the Fire Fighters and Doctors and Mom's with sick kids were able to vote at our GOP neighborhood caucus night, if their schedule didn't allow attending in person.
Why is more time needed? Not only is there a current lawsuit where this will allow time for it to play out it will allow time for the parties to respond to that decision.
2014 SB54 passed less than one year ago demands the Parties change the way delegates can vote at convention, or , as I read it, requires them to double the number of seats, with the backup delegate there just in case, and to have all 29 counties and state conventions in less than 2 weeks.
Not only that, but SB54 includes at least one item Count My Vote didn't because of constitution questions.
Providing time for the court to find out "where is the line" and provide the parties time to see if is even possible to deal with 2014 SB 54 at the county and state levels is smart.
