This is why I'm super skeptical about politicians. They say all the right things and then when in power and with no one watching, they pull this stuff. Anymore I don't trust any of them as a default position. From there they earn my confidence.


It's not just Kennedy, it's my reps, too. I've talked to them. They claim they are against something, then they vote for it anyway.

The problem at the State level in Utah is the same problem we had in NJ. Where one party is in charge, and there is no competition, people are essentially chosen by the powers that be and handed the job. As a result, we end up with lousy representatives who do whatever they want.


This is the by product of one of the parties racing so far Left. It leaves only one alternative for those on the Right. Eventually that one alternative becomes corrupt because there is no competition.



I'm sorry, I'm thinking about the cats again...

As a follow up to the moving the prison story, this gem was in the news today.

Next phase of Point of the Mountain development — how to pay for it all

https://www.deseretnews.com/ar...-pay-for-it-all.html

"In Phase 3, we'll be looking at how do we finance the infrastructure in the development study area, which is going to be significant," Snow said. "I cannot underscore enough the portion that relates to transportation funding."

Snow's underscoring references the estimated $3.7 billion in local, and $7.7 billion in regional, transportation and transit infrastructure investment that was called for in the preferred scenarios approved by the commission. At an event last month to kick off a massive, $430 million expansion of I-15 right in the heart of the Point of the Mountain study area near Lehi, Gov. Gary Herbert said even though there are currently no public transit projects funded or underway, more state funding would be going that direction.

What those funding streams might be remains to be identified but at the same event, Herbert said he would be hesitant to bond for transit projects, as the Legislature opted to do for a $1 billion transportation funding package in the 2017 legislative session. However, changes made in the recent session reworking the governance structure of the Utah Transit Authority could make it easier for lawmakers to push funding in that direction, according to Herbert.

"(Now) we can take our typical transportation fund and expand it beyond just roads, highways and byways into, in fact, mass transit," Herbert said. "That’s the first time we’ve been able to take money from one bucket and put it into another bucket.
