Another corporate welfare bill passed by the Republican legislature. No surprise there.

Murray, UT

Now that the new 1,000 room convention hotel is going to be built thanks to an appropriation from the State, County and City why not build a temporary arena like the one at the MGM Grand Hotel in Las Vegas that can be broken out into all kinds of convention and exhibit space including sporting events? If Salt Lake ever gets the Winter Olympics again this is the kind of venue I envision for the figure skating and ice dancing competitions. Something that can be transformed after the games into more Salt Palace convention or exhibit space.
