Utah Senator Ralph Okerlund from Monroe sits in with the fourth grade class and teachers from Monroe Elementary School February 10 at the State Capitol Building in Salt Lake City.  The students took a field trip to participate in the Senate vote on Senate Bill 41 to change the state tree to the Quaking Aspen, a process in which the students have played an integral part.
