I strongly urge you to pass HB 228 today. You have an opportunity to vote again, please set this right. Please become informed for yourself.
Education is a partisan matter when Utah citizens’ hard earned money and the education of their children is involved. Let the citizens of Utah, not the governor, through recommendations of Utah school boards; decide who determines how our tax dollars are spent via the Utah State School Board. How is it that the Utah State School Board is responsible for 50% of Utah's tax dollars and they are not accountable to us, the people, that worked hard to provide that money? To have a board with that much "power", a board that is accountable to no one, is unacceptable. You can change this by voting “yes” on HB228.
