That’s fair. I suppose I can’t point to a statute that says that. More I moral obligation, I guess, which wouldn’t hold up in court.

I disagree with your narrow interpretation of constituents though. If you chair the higher ed committee (for example) I feel like you have an obligation to communicate with people on those issues. They are constituents, even if they didn’t vote for you.

I wondered about that. Based on what I heard (since I wasn’t in the caucus) it seemed overly cautious. Honestly, seems to me that as long as there are abundant ways for constituents to communicate with reps, go ahead and block em.

If producers can’t sell what they produce unless they sell it to the state, which controls who, when and the cost purchasing it ... I dunno. Guess you can call it what you want. But ...

He may not be wrong. But he has no idea who Dems will elect. And if you look at the last election the winds are blowing decidedly in one direction.

Feel like nerding out? You can test out different tax reform scenarios on this nifty demo that the Legislative Fiscal Analyst’s office put together and get a taste of what state legislators are looking at.

Sheepishly need to clarify this ... Weiler did take this issue to interim committee and there were several hearings. The vote to approve opening a committee bill file was nearly unanimous. But they voted against the bill when it came to committee in November.

Gov. Herbert says red-flag laws are “good in concept,” but need to make sure there is due process “that we don’t have just a haphazard approach of taking away someone’s guns” based on an accusation.

Herbert: "This is not a matter of lets just think about it. This is a matter of we need to do something about it because there is a crisis looming ahead of us.” Says need to broaden base, lower rate.

Gov. Herbert notes that a few years ago, 27 percent of the sales tax money went to higher ed. That is now down to 3-4 percent. (They have diverted that money to pay for roads and other areas of govt.)
