Debating constitutional amendment a in the first half of the program today, continuing our Vote Utah series. The amendment proposes the Utah constitution be amended to require a portion of the revenue from all state severance taxes, to be deposited in the state trust fund, beginning in 2016.
A severance tax is a tax required of all those who extract oil, gas or minerals from land within the state. This amendment would exclude resources taken from Native American tribal land within the state.
