February 7, 2007 Another bad bill
We (ULCT) have taken a formal position opposing HB233, Rep. Morley’s bill that would restrict the ability of cities to zone in environmentally sensitive areas. If you’ve been reading Lincoln’s blog you are familar with the background of this legislation. I was surprised, but pleased, this morning to see in the SL Tribune a letter to the editor also opposing HB233. Thanks Steve Glaser, I couldn’t agree more. Check here.
The Daily Herald today also took a position to oppose HB282 (removal of sales tax on food). Read the editorial here. According to The Daily Herald Newbold’s bill is “fraught with negative consequences.” Of course I agree.
