    Normally I do not like government planning for things. Still we need it some of the time. I would say convert 2800 cars or trucks to natural gas at $5,000 each and it could cost half of that. All new government vehicles should be natural gas powered and buses too. In time all our vehicles could be natural gas.

    If anyone thinks the DAQ or DEQ is looking out for citizens health over big business polluters-they're wrong. The DEQ consistently asks the Feds for enforcement extensions, guaranteeing that our air quality gets worse and water conditions deteriorate. And Utah supposedly touts children's health and clean living as family values?

    I feel Utah DEQ has a lot more work to do. There are lots of questions.
