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…

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

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…
