What's Going On

Last year when the RSL Stadium race was on, The downtown idea was killed because SLC had the audacity to offer public money in the form of RDA to help buy property for the stadium. Shocked and horrified, the legislature killed that idea, Sandy stabbed SLC in the back, taking their money and thumbing their nose at the Council. SL County freaked out and couldn't find its spine and refused to stand up to Sandy Mayor Tom Dolan. RSL owner Dave Checketts promised no public funds would be used and the stadium went to Sandy. Now, the legislature is making a temporary hotel tax permanent as a favor to Sandy so they can help pay for the building of RSL's new stadium. $45 million according to Paul Rollly

This will be a very interesting topic. I am an intern in the House and I have already started to see some interesting dynamics unfold.

This is a surprise? C'mon, we knew it was a bill of goods at the time.

Speaker Curtis is the slimiest politician up there. Somehow Sandy has become the center of Utah.

Not only that, but it looks like he is going to try to move his way up the Utah political ladder. I don't know what office he plans on running for, but the House has been conducted much more openly and fairly this year, with Curtis presenting himself as a statesman. With someone like Curtis, you know that means he is up to something.
