(This is an open letter to the members of the Utah House of Representatives from the members of the League of Women Voters of Utah.)
The League asks you to reject House Bill 174, Sales and Use Tax Allocations for Water Resources Construction Fund (P. Painter).
We question both the need for and the viability of the St. George pipeline, the first project that the Water Resources Construction Fund would support.
The League of Women Voters also asks you to reject this bill because we believe earmarked funds are bad public policy.
Please vote NO on HB 174.
Co-President, League of Women Voters of Utah
