So I guess herbert isn’t drawing any salary from taxpayers, if his job is to do nothing. Same for the utah legislature.
If they don’t want to act when we’re in an emergency—and the fires have burned huge areas, including homes and poisoned the air for the rest of us—when do they act? They are lawmakers, for heavens sake!

and the argument that we must be wise doesn't apply to traffic laws. most of us are wise drivers and follow good judgment, yet we have to outlaw speeding, etc. for those who are not wise.
why not outlaw unwise target shooting, fireworks, and parking hot cars on dry weeds?

herbert is just afraid to lead. he's a follower.

Why not ban all fireworks? No one has the right to light fireworks.
