Thoughts on outcome of 2018 Utah State Republican Convention

I actually think that the caucus and convention system worked pretty good. The process for nominating a candidate for U.S. Senate selected the 2 best candidates and put them on a primary ballot for all Republicans to choose between.The goal of Count My Vote and even SB54 was to create more primary elections so that more rank and file Republicans can participate in the process. By allowing signature gathering, candidates that anticipate that they may not do well among those that participate in…See More

Why someone as conservative as I am is an enthusisatic supporter of Mitt Romnehy for Senate

I expect that if elected to the U.S. Senate to represent Utah we will see the most conservative Mitt we have ever seen. He will represent Utah which is in many ways the most conservative state in the nation and Mitt will accurately reflect the values of those he represents.In his previous elected experience Mitt had to work with the Mass State Legislature which was 90% democrat. Then when he ran for president he had to position himself to pick up enough electoral votes to win. In both of those…See More

Thoughts on outcome of 2018 Utah State Republican Convention

Posted by David Lifferth on April 23, 2018 at 5:30pm 0 Comments

I actually think that the caucus and convention system worked pretty good. The process for nominating a candidate for U.S. Senate selected the 2 best candidates and put them on a primary ballot for all Republicans to choose between.

The goal of Count My Vote and even SB54 was to create more primary elections so that more rank and file Republicans can participate in the process. By allowing signature gathering, candidates that anticipate that they may not do well among those that participate in the caucus and convention system don't have to even deal with that process. They have a completely independent system and can focus solely on the primary election.

Mitt Romney chose a new 3rd process of going through both the caucus and convention as well as gathering signatures. He called it the "belt and suspender" system so that he could ensure that ALL Republicans could participate in deciding if he was they party nominee.

In our caucus meeting the people that were…

Why someone as conservative as I am is an enthusisatic supporter of Mitt Romnehy for Senate

Posted by David Lifferth on February 19, 2018 at 2:51pm 0 Comments

In his previous elected experience Mitt had to work with the Mass State Legislature which was 90% democrat. Then when he ran for president he had to position himself to pick up enough electoral votes to win. In both of those positions he had to present himself as moderate tilting slightly liberal.

In Utah he doesn't need to be any more moderate than the Republicans in Utah. He has already staked his claim to be a budget hawk. He has already staked his claim to defending State's rights in the public lands debate. He will be strongly pro-life and pro-gun rights.

I agree with Newt Gingrich who said that Romney is very smart and will accurately reflect the values of…

Last year, they considered a similar measure but stripped out a section on identifying information because of some concerns with its broad language, according to then-Rep. David Lifferth, a Republican who sponsored the 2016 bill. Lawmakers said they ran out of time to approve it.

Jonathan Johson's list of 2017 Legislative Tax Increases

Posted by David Lifferth on March 20, 2017 at 10:27am 0 Comments

Here are five tax and fee increases passed by the Utah Legislature:

More gas tax hikes • After increasing gasoline taxes by 4.9 cents a gallon in 2015, this year the Legislature again increased gasoline taxes. Senate Bill 276, sponsored by Sen. Kevin Van Tassell, increases gas taxes by 0.6 cents a gallon and 1.2 cents per gallon increased in 2019 and 2020 — totaling an estimated increase of $4.2 million in 2019 and $14.6 million in 2020. The law also allows for bigger annual hikes (16 percent as opposed to 12 percent) until a legal cap of 40 cents per gallon. This is a tax hike that promises to keep on taking.

Upping your phone bill • Prior to the Legislature passing SB 198, Utah already had the 16th highest wireless tax rate among the states. Welcome to the top 10! This bill, sponsored by Sen. Wayne Harper, increases the fees by $6.72 per phone line (landline and wireless) per year. Utahns will…
