(KUTV) Get the prison and you get to tax your citizens. Sound appealing? That’s the proposal behind the passage of prison bill HB 454 that passed late Thursday night on Utah’s Capitol Hill.
“That makes no sense to anybody. Nobody wants the prison and why would we want to be taxed on top of it,” said Jackie Biskupski who is Salt Lake City’s latest mayoral candidate. “It’s essentially saying whoever gets the prison gets to tax their citizens too.”
