Eagle Mtn. Rep. Senator Madsen wants inventory of state owned art

"From paintings to sculptures, a state lawmaker says Utah needs a better accounting of its state-owned art so that valuables won't be tossed out or given away.

Eagle Mountain Republican Sen. Mark Madsen's Senate Bill 10 would create an online database of all state-owned treasures held at universities, museums, courthouses and other locations.

Madsen says database project would cost about $33,000 upfront and a projected $25,000 annually thereafter.

The bill has cleared the Utah Senate but is on hold in the House because of its cost."
