Our Legislature acted with care and responsibility in passing HB13, outlawing parents smoking in cars with children ("Ban on smoking in cars with kids headed to Utah governor," Tribune, March 2). Sen. Aaron Osmond, R-South Jordan, rightly put the health of the child first.
That the bill passed narrowly with objections about "individual liberty" is, sadly, typical in Utah, but astounding nonetheless.
Most outrageous was yet another shameful comment from Sen. Margaret Dayton, R-Orem, that Utahns don't need "clean air Nazis" poking into their homes. I'm not sure what her problem is with clean air, but I have a problem with her Nazi reference.
