Letter to the Editor: Look at the funding

By Charlie Luke

Governor Herbert has allocated state funding to keep the National Parks open. As much as I want the parks, and the entire government, open, I wish the Governor had asked all six members of our federal delegation to figure out how to fund them so that the state could address its own responsibilities. Example: a lack of funding for services for Utahns with intellectual disabilities has led to $8.00/hour private market wages for Utahns providing those services, which has created a turnover rate of over 80 percent in those positions. Utah also has an unfunded waiting list for Utahns with intellectual disabilities.

The federal delegation needs to help end the federal shutdown and Utah should focus on its already underfunded responsibilities.
