A major error was the defeat of Senator Aaron Osmond's "Results Based
Financing for Preschool." The achievement gap starts early. And there is
more and more research that the biggest gap is a result of income. Well-off,
well-educated parents who can afford Pre-K send their kids to preschool. Poor
people can't. All kids deserve a shot at success.
Water? What about HB 36, Storm Water Capture Amendments passing after being help
up for a year?We should all be Happy the Hotel bill failed. A new County Hotel is being looked at even though it could cause the
Grand America and others to go under. I have read the past reports sent to the
Convention Center about the proposed County Hotel. It was pretty obvious that
this connection doesn't work and that the hotels as a whole think the
County is competing with them instead of working with them.I would
like to see the Salt Lake Convention and Visitors Bureau work with the existing
hotel owners instead of trying to compete with them. They almost ignore both the
Little America and Grand America Hotel and that you can ride TRAX free from the
north convention center exit to those hotels.
