Isn't this kind of how Mitt Romney raised revenue without raising "taxes" while he was governor of Massachusetts? Call it a tax or a user fee or whatever, it's still money out of my pocket. The best part for legislators is, it's essentially out of sight, out of mind.

I bet most people don't realize they are already paying municipal taxes through their utility bills. It's called a franchise fee.

Let’s ensure that air quality initiatives will have real impact. SB243 is not the answer.

The letter writer doesn't like taxes,
and doesn't like UTA.

Fine. I hear you.

If you took the time to expalin what ISN'T the answer,
pray tell what IS the answer then?

All I gather is someone ie a card carrying memeber of the party of NO.

I think Sen. Adams needs to man up and just use Utah tax revenues to fund solutions to our horrible air quality.

No one is asking for voluntary donations to Utah's 1.1 billion dollar transportation maintenance budget, or our 3.6 billion dollar educational spending bill.

Passing a law about how much snow should fall won't make it happen.

This bill will funnel lots of money from naive Utah taxpayers into a black hole. There's no guidance whatever in the bill about what the money is to be used for. Who do these legislators think they are fooling?

Sounds like Utah politicians are trying an end-around on this one... using the utility companies as their IRS. They are afraid to propose real taxes (only hidden taxes).
