The Utah House of Representatives passed a bill to conceal personal information of animal researchers at Utah colleges and universities. The Government Records Access and Management Act classifies the names, addresses and phone numbers of those who conduct medical or scientific research. Sen. Greg Bell, R-Fruit Heights, who sponsored the bill said it is in response to animal rights protesters who have harassed researchers. Utah Primate Freedom activists insist their records requests were consistently denied anyways. (2/26/08)
