Herbert's Tea Party Problem

April 4, 2011
Meanwhile, Herbert recently signed legislation repealing HB 477, which would have restricted public access to some government records. But he initially signed an amended version of HB 477, saying that his action created time to produce a better bill, a move that did not sit well with some. Kirkham is not alone in his criticism of Herbert. The governor also faced heat from Salt Lake County Republicans after signing the HB 116. Kirkham said that while other actions Herbert has taken in the past have upset some in the Tea Party movement, his work on the two recent bills have stand out. "Number one and number two by far are HB 116 and HB 477. The other issues were minor issues in comparison. Nothing else compares to those two," he said. Herbert, who assumed office in August 2009, was easily elected in 2010 to serve out the remaining two years of former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman's (R) term. But he'll be up for reelection again in 2012.
