The Libertas Institute’s top legislative priorities

Inside Utah Politics

SALT LAKE CITY (News4Utah) – In three weeks the state legislature will convene for the 2018 session. We check in with one local organization as they speak on some of their top legislative priorities.

President of the Libertas Institute Connor Boyack stops by Inside Utah Politics where he shares his organizations future goals such as repealing or reducing a tax on business supplies.

“This is called the tangible personal property tax. If you’re a business owner, not only are you paying a tax when you buy equipment, but then you’re required to pay annual taxes on items that you’ve already paid for,” Boyack said. “This amounts to a double tax. It’s punitive, it’s redundant and small business owners hate it. It has a very high compliance cost. It’s a big hassle to fill out all these forms Sow were’ going to be trying to shrink it first and then ultimately repeal it in the next 3 or 4 years.” 

He also talks about pretrial reform and their goal to repeal police quotas.
