Real Salt Lake Honored by US House

In a rare moment of political unity, the US House voted unanimously (347-0) to honor Real Salt Lake for its recent MLS Cup victory. The feel-good legislation, sponsored by Reps. Jason Chaffetz, Jim Matheson and Rob Bishop from the Beehive State may not have been an agreement on a budget or universal health care, but at least for a brief moment the two sides of the aisle were able to find a bit of common ground.

Below is a letter from Rep. Jason Chaffetz to Dave Checketts, along with the Congressional Record for the vote of congratulations. You can read more details in this Deseret News article by Lee Davidson.
