It should not necessarily be about taxing citizens. What needs to happen is take stronger measures against the pollution caused by the refineries in North Salt Lake and Rio Tinto.

The study by the U researcher linking higher rates of asthma to the refineries in North Salt Lake should make any parent concerned and desire to take measures to alleviate this potential.

Just my 2 cents.

Go UTES!!

Oh great. Now my trax pass is going to go up in price to pay for Ralph's largesse. Lovely. No wonder I try not to do anything in Salt Lake unless I have to.

Not that it makes a difference to the point the SLC mayor is making, but Whittier Elementary is actually in West Valley City.

How about we don't force all of the high polluters to shut down, but we don't let in any new ones. If any of the old ones leave, none would be allowed to take their place.

Actually, I think there is also a Whittier in Salt Lake. Ignore that part of my previous comment.
