The IUP Panel on emergency spending and the COVID-19 transition

Inside Utah Politics

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah- (ABC4 News) – Lots of questions are being raised as we learn more about emergency purchases being made as part of the state’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

They also weigh in on how the transition to the orange, or moderate phase is going.
