    The Governor of Utah did get $51 billion federal funds to repair the infrastructure of roads and streets so why don't we ask him, wheres the money? $51 billions dollars for road repairs and all we got is special interest freeway's to special interest properties of the rich and infamous in Utah and UTA CEO's. Then of that $51 billion dollars to the rich and the economy, it all went to the economy of China and Mexican cheap labor camps in the SL valley.

    Now they are complaining about fund shortages to repair roads in a fake economic growth. The recession is still on and still getting worse and incomes are neither good nor sustainable for poverty. Governemnt greed has expanded beyond inflation rates and taxes are going up becasue inflation and tax revenue is on the decline because no one has money to spend. A four job income can barely support the american standards of low income poor rating as incomes are diverted to debt and utilities and car/student loans.

    We'll just have to put up with bad roads for another 10 years or when Herbert expires and accountable spending replaces opulent spending.
