The article reports on the cancellation of a planned May special session by Utah Governor John Hunstman Jr. in Utah in April 2006. The May special session was dedicated to discuss income tax reform after the state accountants discovered a 35-million-dollar error in his proposed flat tax. Lawmakers were surprised with the cancellation of the planned special session. Huntsman said that there was no reason to call the session until any kinks are ironed out of the plan.
