Hatch Favors Stem Cell Funding, Draws Pro-Life Ire
In a move that surprised many and shocked Pro-life advocates, Utah Senator Orrin Hatch sent a memo to President George W. Bush outlining his support for stem cell research. Although many in the pro-life movement have fought research using the cells, which are obtained from embryos, Hatch (R-UT) is part of a group of at least 5 other Republican Senators, including fellow LDS Church member Gordon Smith (R-OR), and 30 House Republicans who favor the research.

NYC Mormon Named to IMF
New York attorney Randal Quarles was named Friday by US President George W. Bush as the US Executive Director of the International Monetary Fund (IMF). Quarles, a native of Roy, Utah, leads the financial institutions group and is a partner at New York law firm Davis, Polk and Wardwell. He was also the Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Treasury for financial institutions policy in the George Bush (Sr.) administration. His appointment must be confirmed by the US Senate.

Romney Will Consider Running in Utah
Mitt Romney has suffered through years of accusations regarding bribery, favoritism, and disgruntled donors. And all of that in spite of his failure to be elected to public office. Romney has spent the last few years picking up the pieces of the scandal-plagued Olympic bid and preparing Utah to be the host of the Olympics. Now that his arguably successful stint as the erstwhile savior of the 2002 Winter Games is drawing to a close, it's time for Romney to consider what he might do next.
