Our Republican representatives seem to feel that pursuing an unconstitutional bill (HB114, which seeks to place Utah’s gun laws above federal laws) is more important than allowing private investors to fund a preschool program for at-risk kids (SB71).
Sen. Margaret Dayton, R-Orem, indicated that closing the achievement gap is not "a noble goal"; all the while, our lawmakers waste time debating and attempting to pass a law that any 12th-grade civics student would clearly agree is unconstitutional, all in an attempt to score political points.
I’m embarrassed to call myself a Republican as they continue to place guns and politics above children and education.
