The Senate sponsor of the latest Utah search bill, Curtis Bramble, pulled the it from being voted on by last Thursday's deadline, according to Clickz. After passing the House by a slim margin, the bill had to be voted on by last Thursday, which was the last day of the Utah legislature's 45 day general session this year.
Senator Bramble says the bill needs more debate and consideration. The next chance the bill will have is in 2010, when the legislature convenes again.
If passed, the law would prohibit advertisers from bidding on trademarked terms when targeting Utah consumers.
