This joint resolution of the Legislature designates the state of Utah as a Purple Heart State, strongly encourages Utahns to honor Purple Heart recipients, and honors the service and sacrifice of the nation's men and women in uniform wounded or killed ...

HB 152 Voted and Board Local Levy Modifications
allows the State School Board to pay out to the districts the remaining $25 Million of the $75 Million collected from property taxes to help equalize school funding. $25 Million is an expensive table decoration. The money should either go where it was promised or go back to the taxpayers. (Disclaimer, I voted against the $75 Million property tax increase)
