(KSL News) The House has changed its mind on a bill meant to effectively ban gay-straight alliance clubs at public high schools.

House members passed the bill earlier yesterday but were informed of a procedural error that required them to vote again. That's when it was defeated.

If it had passed, it would have required parental consent for any student to join any school club. It would have also banned any club that "involves human sexuality" or threatens the "moral well-being" of students.
