It’s been a busy week for the Utah Lieutenant Governor’s Office.
On Friday, Mark Thomas, the LG’s Chief Deputy, responded to a series of SB 54 related questions from Utah State Senator Todd Weiler. Thomas’ letter spells out a legal line of reasoning at odds with the Utah Republican Party’s arguments that Judge David Nuffer’s decision guts SB 54. Find the letter below.
Thomas’ letter Friday comes on the heels of LG Spencer Cox’s letter to Evans laying out similar arguments, as well as Cox’s personal apology for some of tense words exchanged during the dispute.
