Deidre's Accomplishments

Deidre solved a decades old problem by requiring counties to hold a “truth in taxation” meeting prior to the start of the new year.  Counties were traditionally holding hearings in August of each year; after they had already been spending the tax increase for 8 months.  This change allows citizens to give input before the money is spent.

During Deidre’s first legislative session she sponsored a bill to create the Federal Funds Commission. The purpose of the commission is essentially to:

• Evaluate Utah’s growing dependence on federal funds

• Identify risk factors that would result in a reduction in the amount or value of those dollars

• Identify common sense ways we can prepare for such a loss and become more self-reliant as a state

This past year Utah created a Federal Funds Risk Model. This tool will help the legislature and governor develop a plan to withstand a fiscal shock, and identify proactive steps we can take to mitigate the effects of a reduction in federal funds.

One of Deidre’s most important responsibilities in the legislature is chair of the Senate Revenue and Taxation Committee. She is dedicated to protecting hardworking taxpayers and a healthy economy by maintaining low-rate, broad-based tax policies.

Do you think Hillary Clinton perjured herself when she testified to Congress? I want the FBI to investigate whether the testimony she gave them matches the testimony she gave the public.
