Utah Laboratory of Democracy Act of 2010

Official Title

To exempt the State of Utah from Federal programs in the areas of education, transportation, and Medicaid so that the State of Utah can undertake innovative methods to manage these government programs using Utah's portion of Federal revenues for these programs, and for other purposes.


Utah Laboratory of Democracy Act of 2010 - Directs the Secretaries of Education, of Transportation, and of Health and Human Services to seek to enter into an agreement with the state of Utah under which the state will assume all responsibility for the administration within the state of federal programs in the areas of education, transportation, and Medicaid. Requires the transfer to Utah each calendar year, if such an agreement is entered into, of an amount equivalent to the portion of the estimated federal tax revenues to be paid that year by Utah citizens that would be returned to the state through federal education, transportation, and Medicaid programs in the absence of the agreement.
