Harry Reid and Senate Democrats refused all compromise with Republicans last year, forcing a government shutdown; Republicans voted to partially fund government where there was bipartisan agreement. 2. Democrats push for restrictive, strangling energy rules, removing our freedom of choice. 3. Democrats push for amnesty for illegal immigrants, unfairly hurting all taxpaying citizens as Dems require increased funds to provide ever more programs for uneducated, unskil...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

And the man in charge of officiating is OK with that. Most of the increase comes thanks to passing-game rules the competition committee decided to emphasize or reword.
