If you haven’t done the survey Logan put up on Tuesday, please do! He’d love to hear your feedback and it only takes a couple of minutes. Your input will help him this week as budgets are planned. If you’re one of the hundreds of voters who already took the survey, thank you! “We were just looking at some of the issues and just wanted to get a feel for how the district felt about some of the questions that we’re fielding by way of email.”, Logan said in an interview. The survey can be found here. About three-quarters of the respondents have said that the education system needs to be improved and needs more funding. Logan agrees.“There needs to be a mechanism to provide more funding and money specifically for teacher pay at the local level.”
Logan presented his first bill to the House on Monday. HB104 is an emissions bill which will give counties greater control over how vehicle emission fees are spent. Current law only permits counties to spend money on enforcement of emissions programs. This bill will allow them to use emission fee revenues on projects that promote air quality as well. Advocating for greater control at the county level is one of the primary issues that Logan campaigned on. The bill passed out of the House without opposition and is headed to the Senate.
This legislative session has been very, very busy. 1,272 bills have been brought forward this session, more than any other legislative session in Utah’s history. The senate has given final approval of HCR12, a resolution which calls on President Trump to reduce the size of Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument, which currently occupies 1.9 million acres of land in Garfield and Kane Counties. HCR11, a resolution to rescind the Bear’s has passed and been signed by Governor Herbert. Rep. Jason Chaffetz gave a copy of it to President Trump on Wednesday.
