‘Utah Politics’ podcast: On this issue, Rep. Blake Moore says he’d work with Democrats

New Salt Lake County GOP Chairman Chris Null also joins this week

(Rick Egan | The Salt Lake Tribune) U.S. Congressman candidate Blake Moore says he's willing to work with Democrats on an infrastructure package, but he's not interested in raising corporate taxes to pay for it.

Republican Rep. Blake Moore says he’s interested in working with Democrats to fund needed infrastructure, especially if it will benefit parts of his district.

“Ogden has a rapid transit system coming in that’s going to be really great for students. Park City may get the Olympics again, so there may be some ways we can support that and tourism,” he said on this week’s Utah Politics podcast. “There’s lots of that stuff that can get put into highway bills, so I’ll absolutely work with the Democrats.”

But Moore says he is not fond of President Joe Biden’s proposed corporate tax hikes to help pay the bill.

“I don’t want to put companies through another change in their tax system,” he says. “We have to make sure that any tax increase doesn’t impact middle-class jobs.”

Also this week on the podcast, we talk with newly-elected Salt Lake County GOP Chairman Chris Null about his plans for the party.
