“In Utah, two Zions Bank employees — Sens. Kevin Van Tassell, R-Vernal, and Jake Anderegg, R-Lehi, signed on this year as co-sponsors of legislation that allows borrowing up to $1 billion to pay for highway projects.
Zions Bank, the state’s contracted adviser for all bonds, is expected eventually to collect about $880,000 in fees from the sale, according to state Treasurer David Damschen.
Van Tassell and Anderegg both said the bond legislation made sense for Utah and that their employer has never told them how to vote.”
