The Court recognizesthat Plaintiff has provided notice to Defendants of this motion, and that Defendants havestipulated to the entry of this order in a telephone conference held this day. Having consideredthe motion and supporting documentation filed by the United States, the Court rules as follows:The United States argues in its motion that Sections 53-13-106.5 and 76-8-512(4) are preempted and unconstitutional.

if the amendments in Utah House Bill (HB) 155 are permitted to take effect on May 14, 2013,and support this argument by demonstrating that the enforcement of Sections 53-13-106.5 and76-8-512(4) will immediately and irreparably (i) disrupt the constitutional order by underminingthe federal government’s control over federal lands, (ii) risk the safety of the public and of officers responsible for the enforcement of law on those lands, and (iii) undermine thegovernment’s ability to protect federal lands and the persons, property, and natural resourceslocated thereon. The United States contends that the balance of hardships tips strongly in itsfavor, and that a temporary restraining order advances the public interest and supports theseassertions. These are the preliminary conclusions of the court in support of this TemporaryRestraining Order and will be revisited entirely at a later date.In order to allow all parties the opportunity to fully present to the Court their positions,the Defendants have agreed to the immediate entry of a temporary restraining order and to theschedule ordered below.IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that:1. Plaintiff United States’ motion for a temporary restraining order is GRANTED.2.
