Perhaps a better way to tackle the growing air pollution problem is for the legislature to impose an added tax on vehicles and cars that get high gas mileage,then allow the Rocky Mountain power to to impose additional fees on people who put solar cells on their houses. After that we can pay consulting companies thousands of dollars for studies to find additional ways to solve this problem.

Utah’s toxic air is making us sick. The Wasatch Airshed has exceeded its maximum natural carrying capacity.

Moving the prison, increasing speed limits to 85, expanding roads, expanding the SLC airport, mega transportation projects will make our air more lethal destroying the existing quality of life of current Wasatch Front residents. Only half of the air pollution problem is from tail pipes.

Kennecott wants to add 500,000 people - Day Break development. SLC wants a thousand of more jets in the valley. Draper wants 700 acres for silicon high rises. Snowbird wants 3,000 housing units. All want more from an air bowl which can’t take any more development.

Utah has planned mega roads/water projects on the wrong land. State air officials advertising “Utah has occasional poor winter air quality” is unhelpful. I-15 is a Carbon Monoxide Corridor not only in winter but all year.

Utah has created the dirtiest air in the highest birthing area of the nation is mindless. 1 of 47 Utah newborns has autism - 1,085 children annually.

No more development in the Wasatch Bowl is not a vote getting talking point. Utah’s has 25 under developed counties begging for growth. Let’s grow there.
