The Utah Taxpayers Association is pleased to announce the 1st edition of a new annual report, titled “The Pork Barrel”. The report is an annual analysis of the Utah State Budget to provide transparency and accountability.
For the first edition of the report, the Association looks back at the last 6 years for overall general fund and education fund ongoing spending and a comprehensive list of all “one-time” spending for the last 2 fiscal years. The report also highlights three areas of the budget – Cultural and Community Engagement, Transportation and Higher Education Buildings. Future editions of the report will highlight other various areas of the budget in addition to overall spending.
