In the 2011 Legislative Session, Representative Carl Wimmer introduced a bill, HJR 37, which purported to limit the growth of Utah’s budget through a constitutional amendment that would replace legislative deliberations with a rigid formula. The bill passed the House Government Operations Committee by the narrowest possible margin, but was never heard on the floor. Still, twenty of his colleagues signed on as co-sponsors, and Rep. Wimmer recently announced that he will continue his efforts to get the bill passed in the 2012 session.  Click on link below to view full report.
