"Romero was honored for his efforts to secure the public release of
Utah's 2010 redistricting records. As a member of the legislative records
committee, Romero was the only legislator to vote to release the records —
a position ultimately adopted by the Legislature."There are only
4 members of the committee, 2 republicans and 2 democrats. The
paragraph, as written, implies that this was a vote by more than 4 people.
Possibly the management committee might weigh in, which has 8 members, 4 D and 4
R's, but not the whole legislature. There was never any
question that the info could be made public, only that the announced fishing
expedition by the state democrat party to see if they should create a lawsuit
should not have been paid by the taxpayers. The records would have been release
a year earlier if the state democrat party just did what they said they would
do, cover the cost. It was all grandstanding. The GOP offered to pay
the cost for the democrats, which would have released the records, and the
democrats didn't allow it. A good senator, but he was wrong, as
were the democrats for sticking the taxpayers with the bill.
