Letter: Penalizing large families

Published: Saturday, Feb. 22 2014 12:00 a.m. MST

So, Democrat Representative Patricia Jones has once again submitted a bill to limit personal exemptions for Utahns to two children. It seems she is saying the State only has interest in educating two children per family.

Families are already being taxed through large school registration fees for all their children attending junior high and high school. Apparently, this is not enough and Rep. Jones proposes that having more than two children should cost even more.

Rep. Jones should look to other countries and cultures where her mindset is prominent — now they have an aging population without a young population to help support them.
