Over 75 percent of Utahns support medical marijuana ballot initiative, a new poll says 31.7.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
Amanda Ellis-Graham’s multiple sclerosis was once so bad she could barely hold a pencil. She suffered from vision and hearing problems. Walking was nearly impossible because of terrible vertigo. Numbness and a sensation of pins and needles slowly spread through her body. Ellis-Graham, now 37, was 18 when she was diagnosed with MS, a debilitating disease in which the body’s immune system attacks and eats away at the protective sheath that covers nerve cells. The symptoms forced her to drop out of... <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>

Who is Rex Tillerson, dark-horse candidate who reportedly beat out Romney, Huntsman for secretary of state? 11.12.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
So far, President-elect Donald Trump’s Cabinet picks have mostly been either multimillionaire and billionaire executives or retired generals. In that context, it’s probably less of a surprise that Trump will reportedly select Exxon Mobil chief executive Rex Tillerson as secretary of state, elevating a dark-horse prospect who may surge past seasoned political actors like Mitt Romney, Jon Huntsman and Sen. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., in the stretch. Tillerson’s hardly an unknown character on the world st... <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>

Letter: 'Take back' decency in governing, not public lands 9.4.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
Several front groups supported by the money and philosophy of outside billionaires operate in Utah. Americans for Prosperity praises and directs our local legislators. FreedomWorks endorses Mike Lee and tells Orrin Hatch not to consider a Supreme Court nominee. Why do we have outside money wielding such influence in our state? Jane Mayer’s “Dark Money: The Hidden History of the Billionaires Behind the Rise of the Radical Right” is instructive. Local legislators and voters need to know that Ame... <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>

Ted Cruz's War on Ethanol Mandates 14.1.2016 Mother Jones
This story originally appeared on the Guardian and is reproduced here as part of the Climate Desk collaboration. For decades, presidential candidates seeking to compete in the Iowa caucuses have dutifully pledged their support for the production and sale of ethanol. In 2011, Jon Huntsman went so far as to cite his opposition to subsidies for production of the corn-based biofuel as a reason to skip the state, given the strength of the lobbying groups behind it. This year could be different. While all three Democratic candidates for the White House have voiced their support for the corn-based biofuel and thus, they hope, garnered support from those who produce and profit from it, the Republican front-runner in Iowa is adamantly opposed. And that could permanently change caucus politics. Ted Cruz is strongly opposed to the renewable fuel standard (RFS), which mandates that all gas sold in the US include a certain percentage of biofuels like ethanol. While ethanol advocates argue that its production is vital ...

GOP Lawmakers Divided On Highway Funding As Trust Fund Expiration Looms 1.5.2015 Politics on HuffingtonPost.com
WASHINGTON -- The federal money pot that pays for roads, bridges and mass transit expires in one month, and lawmakers are struggling to build support for legislation that would extend it. Top Senate Republicans have been meeting for weeks on legislation to fund the Transportation Department’s Highway Trust Fund before the current authorization runs out on May 31. With an extension, the Transportation Department says the fund has enough money to pay its bills until roughly July. Come August, however, the money will stop and the department legally cannot pay states and transit agencies. Four states have already halted work on new infrastructure projects, according to a letter Senate Democrats sent to Finance Committee Chairman Orin Hatch (R-Utah) this week. “Congress is running out of time and we have been down this road before,” Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.), ranking member on the Finance Committee, wrote with the 11 other Democratic committee members. “We know all too well that our nation’s infrastructure is ...
