'Fiscal cliff' adds uncertainty to Utah's otherwise positive economic outlook for 2013
Despite that cautious optimism, the specter of the looming fiscal cliff is troubling to Utah's governor, who wrote a personal letter to President Barack Obama expressing his concern about the matter.
“All of us — federal and state officials alike — must find solutions that represent the best interests of America, and our ongoing efforts to restore our economy,” Gov. Gary Herbert wrote. “Utah is one of the states in America experiencing great progress in our economic recovery. To suffer a substantial setback because federal officials cannot find a compromise economic solution would simply be an unwarranted tragedy. Mr. President, now is the time for bold leadership to protect our economy, our nation and our future.”
