Now to see how quickly it goes from here. Not sure if it will be assigned to a Senate Committee or if it will go to the Senate floor next. Sen. Howard Stephenson has agreed to sponsor it once it gets to the Senate.
For those following from Utah, if you haven't already asked your Senator to support the bill, please kindly do so ASAP!

To all who have taken time to contact legislators, thank you! This is exciting progress in helping bring more awareness about a very difficult condition. I appreciate that Sean and Michelle Agnew took time to bring little Maggie to the committee meeting to help the Committee see first-hand how devastating Mitochondrial Disease can be. For Maggie, and all other families in Utah, this resolution will help others learn more about Mitochondrial Disease, and encourage support as they deal with the decline that comes with this disease. Mito is a progressive disease, meaning that the severity of symptoms and the effects progress over time. Maggie is struggling, and if you have a moment to offer a quick prayer, it can't hurt.
