Utah's population is rapidly growing. Another million residents are expected within the next 15 years. Why is Utah so attractive to new residents, tourists and businesses? I think the answer is primarily due to the combination of Utah's unique beauty, high quality of life and outstanding recreational opportunities.
I applaud gubernatorial candidates Huntsman and Matheson, former U.S. Sen. Jake Garn and the many conservation, sportsmen and recreation groups for their foresight in supporting Initiative 1. This widespread support demonstrates the positive bipartisan recognition that a healthy environment and economy go hand in hand.
