SALT LAKE CITY -- Some Utah legislators joined together Wednesday in opposition of Proposition 1.

Rep. Carl Wimmer, R-Herriman, said, "Now is not the time to raise taxes $15 million. We are standing up to say the taxpayers in this county are taxed enough."

Legislators opposing Proposition 1 say while museums capture heritage, a new dinosaur facility at the Utah Museum of Natural History is not urgent right now.

Proposition 1 would generate $15 million in Salt Lake County property taxes to fund the new facility. That would amount to about $2.40 extra in taxes on the average home for the next 15 years.
