Letter to the Editor

Utahns care about families. We care about children. We have more children per capita than any other state.

This is a very unfortunate statistic, actually. It makes me sad to think that so many children are breathing Utah’s air.

Poisonous air contributes to asthma and autism. Poisonous air stunts lung growth. Poisonous air hurts children.

This upcoming legislative session, we need to make sure that our Legislature does something significant and aggressive about our dirty air problem. If Republicans won’t value Utah’s children with strong legislation, they shouldn’t be trusted to remain in office.

Our children are at risk. We must vote out anyone who doesn’t act like it.
