INCREASED STATE DEBT? i
The Democratic State administration ha3 increased ihe bonded debt of the State of
Utah from $2,860,000 to $9,410,000, which amount includes $1,00,000 soldier
settlement bonds, authorized bui not yet issued. The temporary loan indebtedness of
the State when he present adminstration lock charge of the State government was
$400,000. They have increased this amount to $1,000,000. The additional burden M
on this increased indebtedness for interest alone amounts to $297,000 annually. I
BONDED DEDT NEAR LIMIT: I
Under the Democratic administration bonds have been issued to practically the
maximum amount allowed by the constitution, which limits this indebtedness to
1.5' j of the assessed valuation. The bonded indebtedness of the State of Utah is
now 1.3', , while the average bonded indebtedness of several states of the United
Slates is .68' , .
INCREASED APPROPRIATIONS AND EXPENDITURES: H
In 1915 the Republic an legislature appropriated the sum of $3,078,307.68 for the I
maintenance of the State government for the ensuing two years. The regular and
special sessions of the Democratic 1919 legislature appropriated $4,279,115.12 to
meet the expense of the Slate government for the years 1919-1920, and in addition,
the State Board of Examiners have already granted deficits to various State depart
ments in the amount of $260,000, making a total increase of appropriations
made and deficits granted of $1,460,807.44.
STATE OF UTAH DEFICIT:
A statement prepared in the State Auditor's office as of July 1, 1920, shows that mk
there is a deficit cf $800,000 from the cash on hand and estimated revenue to be M
received to March 31, 1921, and the amount necessary to be paid from the general
fund for that period. This deplorable condition of the financial condition of the
State exists notwithstanding that the amount received from taxes for the credit of
the general fund has increased from $766,080 in 1916 to $1,202,688 in 1919.
INCREASE IN SALARIES AND NUMBER M
OF STATE EMPLOYES: K
The Democratic State administration h.ts increased the number of State employes
165, add tng an additional burden to the State payroll of $30,000 a month ;
$360,000 a year; or $1000 per day, which increase has provided jobs for deserv
OVERHEAD EXPENSE STATE EXPENDITURES:
A statement prepared by the State Auditor showing the expenditures for the
month of March, 1920, by ihe State Road Commission shows that the overhead
expense for State road work was 242.87 j ; in other words, it required $2.42 of
Democratic supervision for every dollar that was actually expended on the roads.
INC REASE IN AUTOMOBILES USED BY STATE EMPLOYES: HH
In 1916 under the administration of Governor William Spry, there were six auto- I
mobiles owned by the State for the use of State employes. The present Democratic
administration has purchased an additional seventy-five, making eighty-one auto
mobiles now owned by the State, which is an increase of 1300' j . A conservative
statement has been made that 50' , of the cost of maintaining these automobiles
should be charged to personal business and joy-riding.
LOANS- STATE BOARD OF LAN!) COMMISSIONERS: HH
The present Democratic State officers when running for office loudly proclaimed
that they would loan the permanent funds in possession of the land commissions
to the small farmers. An audit of the loans made by the State Board of Land
Commissioners discloses the fact that $1,145,000 has been loaned in amounts in
excess of $10,000. Two of these loans require particular mention. The loans
of $160,000 to the Lynndyl Townsite and ihe loan of $110,000 to Orem Town
were made over the strenuous protest of the State Auditor on the ground that
the security was inadequate. Democrats high in the councils of the party were
interested in both of these loans, which may have been a factor taken into consider
ation. On the loan of $110,000 to Or?m Town, the State suffered a direct loss
of $14,000. At the time the bonds of O.em Town were purchased the State Road I
bonds, which the State sold at that time, brought 87 and the State Board of
Land Commissioners purchased the bonds of Orem Town at par. Why did they
not purchase State of Utah Road bond i whose security was beyond question and
save this amount to the taxpayers of th i State? I
FINANCING PRIVATE PROJECTS WITH STATE FUNDS: ,
The present State Road Commission entered into a contract with the Dixie Power
Company to finance the construction of a power line in direct violation of the
constitution of the Stale of Utah, which provides that the State shall never lend its
credit or subscribe to stock or bonds in aid of any railroad, telegraph or any other
private individual or corporation enterprise or undertaking. The only benefit the
State can expect to receive from this expenditure of $40,000 is the right to pur
chase power from this favored company, which it may never need.
Early in 1917 the present Democratic Governor publicly announced that if the
legislature which was uVn in session would grant him an appropriation of $25,000
for the investigation of State Offices and departments that he would turn back
to the State Treasury $100 for every $1 expended. The appropriation was granted
and was familiarly known as "100 to 1 Shot." Special auditors were employed and
the larger part of this appropriation expended without any results, and in 1919 4
another appropriation of $16,000 was made for this same purpose and this money
is now being spent at the rate of $1000 per month by an auditor imported from
the Northwest, who is not even a certified accountant, with no better success than
his predecessor. Notwithstanding that they have been proceeding with this audit
for nearly four years, the present administration is challenged to show the State
Treasurer's receipts, showing that one cent has ever been turned into the State
Treasury as the result of these investigations.
