Utah House Bill HB110
From Susan Ash:
Please allow lobbyists to do their jobs FIRST
We are aware that kratom was slipped onto a bill in UT (HB110) to make it a controlled substance and that it passed out of the House and now moves on to the Senate. However, Senator Curt Bramble is a UT state senator and immediate past president of the National Conference of State Legislatures, who wrote that great letter last week in support of kratom that's in our files. He has a LOT of influence there. Please read it if you're worried about UT.
We are in the education phase right now as its obvious from our lobbyist speaking with the sponsor of the bill that he did not really understand what kratom is. The moment we are asked to have Utahans contact their legislators, if need be, we will let you all know. But as happens sometimes in lobbying strategically and at high levels, we've been asked to let the pros handle things first so we don't make the situation volatile there. I hope you can understand and thank you for cooperating!
