I find it interesting that we have a conservative government in Utah that calls for independence from the federal government by refusing to accept Federal money. Then they want to use $500,000 of our tax dollars to pay a professional D.C. lobbyist to stop the federal government from trimming the budget by cutting jobs or services at Hill Air Base.

I thought that our elected Washington officials are paid to represent us in these types of matters.
