Then its time to stop the flood of bills, they must limit the number of bills and prioritize legislation as essential, trivial, or necessary for the purpose of government operations. This should be the job of committiees but they are noting but advoactes with agendas and personal quests and should not make it to the floor.

I don't like the idea of our legislator having to hire outside people to his job. His mind, his values, and his soul belongs to the citizens and no other can make his decisions. Advocates and PAC and special interest intentionally overload the sessions hoping that our representatives won't read any of the bills or legislation. Any legislator signing off on any bill without reading should never trust others decisions. They are paid not to trust and it violates my trust to work on bills in this manner of blindly signing any bill.

If more time is needed than more time should be allotted. This State and its problems have grown- thus the time needed to deal with these problems needs to grow. To stick to outdated methods is foolish.
It seems to me that this is a golden opportunity for the University to step forward with some credited time for students to assist in legislation research.

Welcome to the world of the Utah teacher, who has to continually dig into their own pockets for supplies required in their grossly overcrowded class rooms.
