Subject: Please Vote "NO" on HB 96 Utah School Readiness Initiative (Rep. G. Hughes)
Date: Thu Feb 06 06:12:19 MST 2014
Dear Representative Lifferth,
As a Utah resident and mother of four children, I am respectfully asking that you vote against HB-96. I do not believe that the institutionalization of pre-school age children is beneficial or necessary. When funding is already needed for existing, proven educational programs, I do not think it wise to appropriate additional funding for unproven initiatives which require the longitudinal monitoring of individual children. Since this bill also requires that private entities be repaid with interest (see lines 432-437), additional costs above and beyond the initial investment will be incurred. Please vote no on this bill. Thank you for your service.
