Denney: ‘He’s mediating between us’

House Speaker Lawerence Denney, R-Midvale, had this to say about the House GOP leadership’s meeting with the governor this morning: “We’re still talking, and that’s good.” Denney said, “I think we will caucus - I’ve told people to be back around 2.”

Of the ongoing talks on transportation funding, Denney said, “I think we’ve eliminated some of those ideas, and we’re still actively negotiating on what’s going to get us out of here.” The governor, he said, is “at the center of it. At this point, it’s not really the governor that’s keeping us here, it’s the Senate. I think he’s mediating between us.” Denney said opposition from House Transportation Chairwoman JoAn Wood wouldn’t stop a compromise on transportation funding. “She may not be willing to do anything, but I don’t think that’s necessarily the feeling of the caucus,” he said.
