Pat Jones’ SB 118 is a tax raise on families [Publius Online]

Senator Pat Jones proposal to raise taxes on families with children to send more money to Utah teachers sounds like a way to boost education dollars. In reality, Jones’ $400 million proposal takes from those who need it most: Families with children, especially those with lower incomes. If passed, the bill would create jobs in education and allow schools to shrink class sizes by hiring new educators, Jones said.
