First day of the Session

Yesterday was the opening of the 58th session of the Utah State Legislature. This year we will face unique challenges as we find ways to trim the budget and make certain that each and every tax dollar is used to its full capacity.
Wouldn't it be great if the cuts that were made were legitimate government waste instead of arbitrary cuts on projects that need the money? Help us find places where money is being wasted so that we can direct it to where it really needs to go!

  1. When you talk about cutting costs or programs, think about the building that cost us 600 million dollars(or whatever the cost) to move it across the street, how many feet, to "preserve" it, did we really need to do that and why so much money, and then you want to cut education, health dept and other MUCH needed programs, and tell me how many people will go to this building or how many will be allowed to go to it? now is this really saving us money? if it were my choice i would say, save the education and other much needed programs before we move a historic building, isnt our education worth saving?
