Submission Text
Hello this is Eric Johnson.· Can you hear me?


Hi.· I am the attorney for the Seven County Infrastructure Coalition.· And I wanted to respond to concerns about the registration of the Coalition with the Utah Lieutenant Governor's office. · · · · ·Today it was brought to my attention that we received a notice about registration.· I will follow through and find out what is behind that. · · · · ·

I'm not sure, because last year, there was a lawsuit filed related to this rail project that asserted that the Coalition was not a public body, and that was fully litigated to the Court.· The Court did find that the Coalition is a public body.· We do have a Certificate of Existence from the Lieutenant Governor's office.· We also filed all of our registration materials with the Governor's office.· So I'm not exactly sure where the disconnect has come in, but we will follow through and make sure that the Lieutenant Governor's office has all of the documentation that they need. · · · · ·Thank you.· That's all I had.
