    A major error was the defeat of Senator Aaron Osmond's "Results Based Financing for Preschool." The achievement gap starts early. And there is more and more research that the biggest gap is a result of income. Well-off, well-educated parents who can afford Pre-K send their kids to preschool. Poor people can't. All kids deserve a shot at success.

    Water? What about HB 36, Storm Water Capture Amendments passing after being help up for a year?

    We should all be Happy the Hotel bill failed.

    A new County Hotel is being looked at even though it could cause the Grand America and others to go under. I have read the past reports sent to the Convention Center about the proposed County Hotel. It was pretty obvious that this connection doesn't work and that the hotels as a whole think the County is competing with them instead of working with them.

    I would like to see the Salt Lake Convention and Visitors Bureau work with the existing hotel owners instead of trying to compete with them. They almost ignore both the Little America and Grand America Hotel and that you can ride TRAX free from the north convention center exit to those hotels.
