Letter: Public nixes bond for schools; child tax exemption limit next?
This is an archived article that was published on sltrib.com in 2013, and information in the article may be outdated. It is provided only for personal research purposes and may not be reprinted.

The public recently voted down a large bond proposal to fund education (schools) for the future in the Jordan School District ("$495M Jordan school bond loses big in Tuesday election," Tribune, Nov. 6).

The area's predominant religious group continues to promote and expect large families, which place increased strain on education. No one with a large family wants to talk about limiting the tax exemptions for dependent children to raise tax revenue for education. It will be interesting to see what happens now.
