SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (News4Utah) – A small group gathered at the Governor Herbert’s Office Thursday to ask that he veto Senate Bill 234.
People at the protest say SB234 will give the Port Authority all the tax increments that will be generated in the area.
Translation: they say that will deprive Salt Lake City of resources needed to support public services for the area.
“My message to Governor Herbert is that we need him to represent the residents of Salt Lake City and not allow the Port Authority to take authority away from Salt Lake City, because those are the ones that we elected to represent our interests in the Northwest quadrant,” said Marlene Jennings.
Jennings also says business in the area already will be impacted by this bill.
