Utah Special Session to be Held on December 3
The Utah Legislature will meet in a special session on December 3 to discuss the voter-approved medical marijuana ballot measure passed by a majority of voters this month.
This week, Senate President Wayne Niederhauser said his fellow senators needed to attend the session and he could compel their presence if necessary.
Gov. Gary Herbert vowed to call a special session to discuss medical marijuana regardless of the outcome of the bill. Gov. Herbert has been working with legislators and the Mormon church to find a compromise and tweak legislation based on the passed measure.
A two-thirds majority vote is necessary to make the legislation effective.
