So much cynicism.

No one is represented 100% of the time. We have a lot of one-issue folks to whom their issue trumps all else. Problem is there are nearly three million of us. No-one will be happy 100% of the time.

I for one have been generally pleased with our legislature. There have there been exceptions...of course.

My appreciation for those who truly try to serve the interests of Utah!

I for one will be praying for the Utah State Legislature!

FYI - Bees are Communist / Extreme Socialist
Just thought you'd like to know the facts.

What do you say the legislature actually Walks the Talk?!

Take advice from the voters. Repeal HB 116 We dont need guest workers.

I can't believe no one mentioned this great line:

"No mans life, liberty, or property are safe while the Legislature is in session"

May the session pass quickly!

All working together for the success of all ---bees are socialist? Oh, yeah, not in the republic of Utah.

Jim I. Since we don't need guest workers I take it you are volunteering yourself and your family to help our farmers harvest crops next summer. You should hear Doug Wright's story about the farmer in Colorado who decided to go with local help instead of bringing in migrant workers. Big mistake, crops rotted in the field. Don't work to hard.

Another fiasco fueled by the radical right is coming! If you look sideways at them they will pass a law. Control freaks attempting to control everyone!

Downsize government and shelve legislation for special interest. Get some sense of reality, plan for unsustatinable government jobs.

Redefine illegal immigrant as foreign occupation and make illegal aliens and families POW's and turn them over to the National guard to deport them. Make it a crime for illegal aliens to abandon their children, force accountability of families on foreign nationals.

Punish and fine business that employ illegal aliens with or without knowing.

Make it illegal for police to harass people carrying guns openly, a legal right of citizens.

Replace Waddups as speaker, he is endangering the rights of Americans.

My 2 Cents If you were any more to the right you would be in danger of falling off the edge of the earth. Comments like yours are reason I and many other Utahns despise right wing conservatism. you are so out of touch with reality it is unbelievable. Thanks for listening. I just pray others don't embrace your radicalism. It is views like yours not Obama that concern me.

Orem, UT

As H.B.116 was so flawed, I'm looking to forward to seeing if we get real immigration legislation this year, something that doesn't cost Utah so dearly and doesn't violate the U.S. Constitution.
