More information on bills vetoed by Gov. Herber after 2016 Legislative Session

Vetoed Bills in the 2016 General Legislative Session



IMG_8364

In consultation with the Legislature, the Governor vetoed six items of appropriation for technical reasons.  Five of them – House Bill 3, Items 47, 52, 125 and 149; and House Bill 2, Item 111 – because they funded the implementation costs of various bills that ultimately did not pass the 2016 Legislature.  He vetoed one…

Jake has already admitted guilt and paid a fine for the allegations that he claims are false

Posted by David Lifferth on April 22, 2016 at 7:27pm 0 Comments

For the record, Jake has already admitted guilt and already paid a fine as a result of these allegations, which he claims, are false.  If these allegations are false as he claims, then Jake should get a refund for the fine that he paid for not disclosing who paid for his trip to Europe. These allegations are complicated and no doubt Jake is in damage control and trying to minimize the fallout from these issues.  I would hate to be in his situation. That is just one of the reasons that I avoided seeking out campaign donations from lobbyists and special interests.

 

The Hobbs Act (18 U.S.C. § 1951) is a very serious issue. It is a federal law that the LG’s office is not in a position to dismiss or adjudicate. Interestingly enough, when I first discussed these issues with the LG’s office they didn’t even know what the Hobbs Act was. They had however noticed that a financial disclosure from 2014 was updated 3 years later to change “JAKE ANDEREGG Travel expenses to China”…

Gov. Herbert calls special session of Utah State Legislature



SALT LAKE CITY (April 20, 2016) –

Gov. Gary R. Herbert has issued a call for a special session of the Utah State Legislature to address two separate items:



A concurrent resolution opposing the unilateral designation of a national monument in the state of Utah

The restoration of funds for several items in

S.B. 2,

including $4.775 million for education initiatives



“It is absolutely irresponsible for the Obama Administration to consider a new national

monument that is over two and a half times the size of Rhode Island without input from Utahns from across the state who will be significantly impacted by this decision,” Gov. Herbert said. “As governor of the State of Utah, I have stated repeatedly that I

oppose such a declaration. Today, I am asking every member of…

Every Voter should be outraged by Anderegg's & Madsen's Lobbyist paid vacation in Rome

Posted by David Lifferth on April 9, 2016 at 7:55am 0 Comments

I got into politics because of corrupt politicians that were lining their own pockets instead of doing what they were elected to do.



The lobbyist that paid for Rep. Anderegg's wife and Sen. Madsen's wife to fly to Europe and vactaion with them in Rome, Italy called me and told me how they paid for that vacation in Europe.  The online reporting by Rep. Andregg and Sen. Madsen of that trip last fall does not match what the lobbyist told me. Rep. Anderegg has already been fined for not reporting his plane tickets. But what is online still doesn't match what the lobbyist toldme.

I can't reconcile Sen. Madsen and Rep. Anderegg's financial reporting with what I have heard from Lobbyists that donated to their campaigns to pay for them and their wives to go to Italy and Switzerland.  I will ask for an investigation to audit their financial reports.

In this post John Swallow era, these reporting requirements are very strict with the purpose of being…
