Photos and details from the bomb threat at Eagle Valley Elementary School on September 19, 2016

We should all be grateful for the professional way that teachers, faculty, law enforcement, and the community responded to the bomb threat today at Eagle Valley Elementary School.

Rep. Lifferth again recognized as a Chamber of Commerce Business Champion

Posted by David Lifferth on October 26, 2016 at 7:44pm 0 Comments

In 2016, Rep. Lifferth was again recognized as a Chamber of Commerce Business Champion. Despite voting against some of the crony capitalism bills such as the Facebook tax break, Lifferth's support for a pro-business environment for all business has again earned him recognition by the Chamber of Commerce.

Rep. LIfferth one of few Legislators recognized as a Conservatibve in Utah

Posted by David Lifferth on October 26, 2016 at 7:37pm 0 Comments

The American Conservative Union recently recognized Rep. Lifferth as one of only 10 Conservative Representatives and Senators in the Utah State Legislature.  Interestingly, there were ZERO Utah State Senators that were recognized as conservative. There were only 10 Representatives that were recognized for their Conservative Achievement in 2016.

Along with Lifferth, Representatives Coleman, Greene, Knotwell, McCay, Roberts, Stanard, and Stratton were also recognized with teh "Award for Conservative Achievement" in 2016.…

Rep. Lifferth only elected official in North West Utah County to vote against Tax Break for Facebook

Posted by David Lifferth on October 26, 2016 at 7:21pm 0 Comments

Rep. Lifferth was the only elected official in North West Utah County to vote against Tax Break for Facebook.

The $300 Million tax break for Facebook passed by large margins in the Utah State House and Senate and a smaller $100 Million tax break was approved by the Utah State Board of Education. In the end, Facebook chose to build their data center in New Mexico which had given even larger incentives to Facebook which is one of the biggest companies in the world.

Photos and details from the bomb threat at Eagle Valley Elementary School on September 19, 2016

Posted by David Lifferth on September 19, 2016 at 7:30pm 2 Comments

We should all be grateful for the professional way that teachers, faculty, law enforcement, and the community responded to the bomb threat today at Eagle Valley Elementary School. In speaking with some of the teachers it only took 3 minutes from the time that the evacuation orders were given until ALL students were out of the building. Eagle Valley Elementary had run an evacuation drill a week ago and practice evacuating the school. That is what led to the quick, orderly, and safe evacuation today.



I had the opportunity to thank many of the teachers that were still around…

Update on Prison Relocation Site Selection

Posted by David Lifferth on August 1, 2016 at 8:41am 0 Comments

Subject: Prison Development Update

 

All,

 

The chairs of the Prison Development Commission have asked that I send you the following update:

 

 

Dear colleagues,

 

Since the Legislature approved the Salt Lake City site as the location for the new Utah State Correctional Facility, the executive branch has been working hard to perform necessary tests, analyses, and evaluations in preparation for the purchase of the land upon which the facility will be constructed. We wanted to provide you an update of their progress.

 

Parcel Selection

As you recall, the Salt Lake City site the Legislature approved for the relocation of the state correctional facility is more than 4,000 acres – far larger than what is needed for the new facility. The Division of Facilities Construction and Management (DFCM) has been evaluating two primary parcels within the recommended site to determine which is most suitable for the facility (see map). Today, DFCM is…

How I voted in the July 13, 2016 Special Legislaive Session

Posted by David Lifferth on July 14, 2016 at 8:30am 0 Comments

These are the voting results from the Special Legislative Session on July 13, 2016.

House Bills



H.B. 3001 -- Tax Credit Review Amendments (Rep. Peterson, J.)

I voted YES and we need to constantly review Tax Credits. This bill had only 1 opposing vote in the house and senate combined.



H.B. 3002 -- State Fair Park Amendments (Rep. Hollins, S.)

I voted YES and this passed unanimously in both House and Senate. I was actually on the fence on so I was surprised when there were no opposing votes. With half of the funding for this 10k seat stadium coming from private sources, this is a deal for taxpayers. The Utah State Fair is mandated in the Utah State Constitution, so making it viable and self-sustaining is important.

H.B. 3003 -- Unmanned Aircraft Amendments (Rep. Ipson, D.)

I voted YES. This bill…

Feedback from resident Phil Bruick on items on Special Session Agenda July 13, 2016

Posted by David Lifferth on July 13, 2016 at 10:14am 0 Comments

See my responses in RED

Phil


Dear Philip,

I'm sorry for the late notice, but like you I haven't recevied much notice for the Special Legislative Session that the Governor called for the day after tomorrow, July 13, 2016.

I am typically very skeptical of legislation that is not given thorough review and vetting and will typically vote against legislation that is not able to be reviewed by voters in my area. I won't have time to set up a survey and get feedback from voters. So if you have thought on any of these issues, please reply to this…
