Now not the time for new tax policy
Governor Herbert says Utah's current tax policy should not be changed while the state is undergoing the economic effects of the coronavirus crisis.
The governor vetoed several bills involving tax policy yesterday, saying lawmakers should pursue a more comprehensive tax reform package rather than individual bills.
He also vetoed a proposal to change the way the state funds students with special needs, and another that would have installed signs and fences along the Jordan River.
Yesterday was the final day of a 20 day window the governor has to sign or veto bills following the end of the Utah Legislature's regular session.
