Montana legislator wants to clear up confusion among state's judges

Reported in Montana Senate endorses anti-Sharia law bill.  (Great Fall Tribune, 2.2.2017)
The bill prevents state judges from applying foreign laws in their courtrooms.  The bill by Republican Sen. Keith Regier of Kalispell does not mention Sharia law, which is used in some parts of the Islamic world, but that has been the main topic in debate over the measure.
Democratic Sen. Diane Sands of Missoula said earlier this week the bill addresses a problem that doesn’t exist in Montana, and it only creates dissension among citizens.

Jennifer, perhaps clarity can be better achieved by strengthening the state's Judicial Education requirements.
