Highways. Water projects. Schools. Moving the state prison. All of these are competing for additional funding in next year’s budget. Legislators and advocates will call for bonds or appropriations to fund these important projects and activities. Yet, the State Treasurer and bond rating firms are concerned about Utah’s recent rise in debt loads. What should we do? How much additional debt should the state take on? Which projects are most urgent and need funding first?
On November’s Interim Day, come early to the Capitol for food and lively discussion before the day’s committee meetings. We’ll discuss the major funding requests with some of the leaders who will advocate for or against these projects and make decisions on them. Register now!
