Utah ID Bill Advances to Full House

"A proposal targeting evolution survived its toughest challenge Wednesday when it eked out of a House committee by one vote," reports Matt Canham of the Salt Lake Tribune. "

"SB96, which requires teachers to say the state doesn't endorse any theory involving the "origins of species," needs only the support of the full House to pass the Legislature after gaining approval by the House Education Committee 7-6. "

"The bill is the brainchild of Sen. Chris Buttars, R-West Jordan, who is disgusted that some educators teach that humans have a common ancestor with chimpanzees. "
