Following adjournment of today's special legislative session, Governor Gary R. Herbert issued the following statement:
"I thank the Utah State Legislature for their timely attention to critical issues facing our state, including the temporary funding of national parks and furloughed state workers. In contrast to dysfunction in Washington, D.C., the State of Utah has again demonstrated our ability to come together to find solutions and provide critical stability for our recovering economy."
This will be the second Special Session the Governor has called this year. The first one occurred on July 17, 2013.
