FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: March 4, 2019
Salt Lake City, UT – Following this morning’s denial of certiorari by the United States Supreme Court in the appeal of the Utah Republican Party over S.B. 54, Chase Thomas, executive director of Alliance for a Better Utah, issued the following statement:
“The Supreme Court’s decision this morning is a win for the people of Utah. It is a validation of the democratic principles that allow every Utahn to be involved in choosing their government officials, rather than allowing extremist factions to dictate choices for us.
“As this prolonged and unnecessary controversy is put to rest, we strongly urge government officials and party leaders to move on and cease any legal and legislative attempts to dilute, amend, or repeal this popular law. As for us, we will continue to advocate for policies that increase the ability of every Utahn to be involved in the civic process to the fullest extent possible.”
Alliance for a Better Utah is a good government advocacy and watchdog organization based in Salt Lake City. The organization works to improve the lives of all Utahns by ensuring balance, transparency, and accountability in Utah politics, policy, and government. More information at www.betterutah.org.
