You may have read about how there is lobbying happening at the Capitol from both sides of polygamy debate.
The Darger family has been on the hill and talking to lawmakers about striking or changing Utah’s bigamy laws to legalize their lifestyle.
Meanwhile, Kristyn Decker, a former plural wife, has been passing petitions and encouraging lawmakers to keep polygamy illegal.
But for all the talk, it looks like nothing will change at the Capitol this session. My search Thursday on the Legislature website revealed zero bills addressing bigamy or polygamy.
Of course, this could still get legislated from the bench, as they say. A federal judge is pondering a lawsuit from the Brown family of "Sister Wives" fame claiming Utah’s bigamy statute is unconstitutional.
