Friday, February 17: Building the State Budget

By Dan Bammes

Salt Lake City, UT – Assembling Utah's 9.7 billion dollar state budget is a complex operation, beginning with last year's budget and the governor's proposals and ending with last-minute maneuvering to get funding for various programs and priorities. It's even more complex this year, when the legislature has a huge revenue surplus to account for. Dan Bammes hosts RadioWest as we examine how the state budget is actually put together and what influences legislators as they make the final decisions.
