Former UT Senator Goes On Record Against User Fees

Wishes He Could "Talk Some Sense" Into Former Colleagues

The latest announced opponent of Senate Bill 1300, which would reauthorize the FAA and add user fees for general aviation, is former astronaut and Utah Senator Jake Garn.

"This is the only time since I left the Senate that I wished I was still there so I could talk some common sense into my former colleagues," Garn recently told the Salt Lake Tribune. "I think it will have long-term negative impacts on small businesses and communities across the nation."

Current Utah Senator Orrin Hatch, who sits on the Senate Finance Committee, has not said how he will vote.

Garn's comments came during a press conference arranged by the anti-user-fee Alliance for Aviation Across America.

Other Utahans of note lined up against the Senate bill are Arthur Douglas, president of the Utah Farmers Union, St. George Mayor Daniel McArthur, and Stephen Thompson, a member of the Logan City Council.

The Senate Commerce Committee will take up the bill this week.
