A Senate committee made quick work Wednesday of shutting down a bill that would lift the income tax rate for wealthy Utahns. Without debate, from lawmakers or members of the public, the Senate Revenue and Taxation Committee voted 4-2 against SB141, which would create a 7 percent income tax for individuals earning more than $250,000, or couples earning more than $500,000. Utahns below those earning levels would continue to be taxed at a 5 percent rate. âThis isnât about class warfare,â said bi... <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>
The calls West High School teacher Valerie Gates receives from worried parents are coming more and more frequently. The callers wonder whether itâs safe to send their undocumented children to school, Gates said, terrified that that day is the day their boys and girls will be deported. âI talk to [parents] every day, and when I say send them to school, am I telling them the right thing?â Gates asked Tuesday at a Salt Lake City School District Board of Education meeting. âCan I truly protect them... <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>

The so-called âno promo homoâ law is being targeted in court by Equality Utah, which filed a lawsuit in October accusing the state of promoting an anti-gay curriculum in public schools. Clifford Rosky, a University of Utah professor and Equality Utah board member, said the legal ambiguity of what âadvoca...
Utahâs nascent school turnaround program would get a makeover under a bill that received committee approval on Tuesday. Under SB234, the $7 million-a-year program would continue to hire private contractors to work with struggling public schools. But success would be based on âstatistically significant improvement,â rather than increasing by a letter grade under school grading, and turnaround schools would have the ability to use a portion of state funding on teacher retention efforts â if thos...
