    I think the republican caucus has a pretty good idea, and I think the political leaders in Tooele County do too!

    We are going to move. Great. But we have no clue to where. Don't you think it would part of the decision process to know where you are going?

    The supporters/leaders of the tax payers association will make money on this deal, that is why they are silent.

    The only ones who support the prison being moved are construction companies, land developers and real estate (which happens to be a big chunk of our Legislature).

    The taxpayers of Utah will be saddled with the dept, while a handful make a financial killing. Where is the respected Utah taxpayers association in all this?

    This is a typical case of insider trading and manipulation of government assets where developers and financiers who are now elected legislators can work their inside magic with tit for tat trades to help each other capitalize on the loop holes in conflict of interest laws to buy this property on highly discounted and deferred payments so they can make billions of dollars that should be the property of the tax payers.

    It only takes one or two legislators to manipulate the rest of the cabinet of representatives with secret promissory agreements among themselves and outside the scrutiny of watch dog organizations and the accountability for the secret deals in insider legislation trades. To skirt accountable and honest legislation with insider manipulation is declare personal interest and not vote on the proposed bills.

    Without any laws to establish honest and open government this state legislature is the biggest organized crime ring that can do whatever it wants to steal from the citizens and our government taxation.

    Developers and special interest including the UTA/SLC privatized criminals and thieves.

    From what is written in the article, seems transparent that the people employed at the prison, the people that go to see their people in the prison, and the citizens have little say. It is also transparent that the developers are the ones pushing this move, maybe this time they floated enough "incentives" to the right people to ensure this happens.
