Utah Legislature Wraps Up Session

By Jenny Brundin

Salt Lake CIty, UT – Utah lawmakers ended their 45-day general session last night, putting the finishing touches on a budget expected to add up to 10.7 billion dollars and passing 422 bills. Using the biggest surplus in state history -- 1.7 billion dollars -- lawmakers carved up most of the money between education, roads and a 220-million dollar tax cut. Most lawmakers agreed this was a kinder, gentler session and most everyone went home happy. KUER's Jenny Brundin reports.
