PROVO, Utah (AP) - A proposal to require labels on some pornography in Utah is one step closer to becoming law.

Another panel of lawmakers approved it Tuesday.

The Daily Herald in Provo reports a Republican lawmaker has narrowed his proposal to require the labels only on material declared legally obscene, a relatively small slice of hardcore pornographic material.

A trade group for the porn industry has said it nevertheless presents serious concerns because the definition of obscenity is open to interpretation.

The legislation would require porn makers to put the label on material in print and online, and each violation could carry a $2,500 fine.

  1. The applicants for that job were lined up around the block!
    J Weld, you must be referring to the truly obnoxious JW tribe. Ive always found LDS missionaries to be pleasant and polite if you say “no thanks” to them at the door. Im not LDS myself by the way. The JW crowd is always ready for an argument and if they smiled, their zealot faces would crack. “Quick, turn off the lights and hide! The JW’s are on the street.”
