As we reach the back stretch of the legislature, the question of "how big will the cuts be?" permeates our thoughts. We are watching with chagrin the disaster in Jordan and with apprehension of what might happen in Ogden and Weber districts. We will know more after the legislature. The two retirement bills passed by large margins (SB43 53-20 and SB63 46-26). Brad Dee sponsored and spoke for both bills. The two bills now go back to the Senate to vote on the amendments. The bills are improved, but not what we wanted.
