While I could list many items in each category (see my previous posts during the 2007 Utah legislative session), I have chosen one in each for this past legislative week:
Utah House committee unanimously opposes Nevada test
Readers of my blog know my position on the Divine Strake Test. This is a very positive move by our legislators to oppose this test. Even military supporters are opposing the test.
Stadium plan is Real as it gets: State sets aside $35M for Sandy soccer facility
While Utah citizens continue to not be able to afford healthcare, work for poverty level wages, and our educational system needs continued funding to improve its system, our state legislators devote millions of dollars to recreation that only the rich can afford.
