Environews: Mayor Biskupski sues over Inland Port

By Amy Brunvand

Salt Lake City Mayor Jackie Biskupski has filed a lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of the 2018 law that created an Inland Port Authority to develop Salt Lake City’s Northwest Quadrant. The lawsuit says that the un-elected Port Authority usurps city taxing and land use powers.

The Port Authority is not accountable to voters, yet it can override city decisions regardless of negative health or environmental impacts.
