Budget covered all needs, and a few wants

Rep. Brad Dee, Standard-Examiner
Mar 14 2014 - 11:28am

I'm writing this article in the waning hours of the 2014 Legislative Session. We have just finished voting on what we affectionately call "the Bill of Bills," which is the final piece of our $13.5 million budget. The Bill of Bills is like your "odds and ends" drawer. This bill has all the final items that didn't fit anywhere else or that were...

Education spending to increase in WPU funding

Rep. Brad Dee, Standard-Examiner
Mar 10 2014 - 11:43am

Education is one of the most important public policy and budgetary areas that the Legislature deals with each session. Public education is the largest single budget driver each year. Of course, the public policy part of education is very important as well since it shapes the future workforce and leaders of the state. Year over year we continue...

House colleagues working hard, offering ideas

Rep. Brad Dee, Standard-Examiner
Feb 28 2014 - 1:00pm

Our Legislative session is a quick 45-day process. Since it is so short, collaboration and good working relationships with legislative colleagues are critical. It is very important that we coordinate, that lines of communication are open and that respect is high so we get the best policy outcomes for northern Utah and the entire state. Throughout...

HB20 deals with police pursuit concerns

Rep. Brad Dee, Standard-Examiner
Feb 21 2014 - 3:08pm

Law enforcement personnel put their lives on the line on our behalf each day. They never know when they may be called upon to respond to a traffic accident, burglary, or trespassing incident. Sometimes they have to respond to an even more dangerous situation like a fleeing suspect. It is definitely a complicating factor for law enforcement when a...

Hope Lodge funding a worthy cause

Rep. Brad Dee, Standard-Examiner
Feb 14 2014 - 2:09pm

Nearly 11,000 Utahns were diagnosed with cancer in 2013, and just under half of those diagnosed needed to travel to Salt Lake to receive treatment at our world-class facilities. Sadly, I'm sure that we all know someone very close to us that has battled cancer, or perhaps you may have battled it yourself.This insidious disease and the treatments...

911 consolidation bill needed

Rep. Brad Dee, Standard-Examiner
Feb 7 2014 - 11:37am

From the time we are little, we are taught that if you need emergency help, the number to call is 911 and the dispatch system will connect you to emergency personnel and help will quickly be dispatched your way. Unfortunately, we have discovered that serious flaws exist in our dispatch system when coordinating between cities and counties as...

The House wraps up AG investigation

Rep. Brad Dee, Standard-Examiner
Jan 31 2014 - 1:43pm

Last July, the Utah State House of Representatives took the extraordinary step of forming an investigative committee to delve into the wrongdoings of former Attorney General John Swallow. This was the first time such a committee has ever been convened in the history of the state, and I hope it will be the last. I served on this committee,...

My hopes for the 2014 Legislative Session

Rep. Brad Dee, Standard-Examiner
Jan 24 2014 - 12:43pm

When speaking with legislators from other states, or our own representatives in Congress, I'm always happy to point out that Utah balances its budget each year -- in 45-days no less. Balancing budgets is hard work and few were harder than those we balanced during the recession.  Each year, in many hours of budget hearings, we go through the...
