"Sometimes we want instantaneous results and we want answers and we want them right now," Dunnigan said. "This is going to be a months-long process, not a weeks-long process."

That means the investigation would overlap with the 2014 legislative session, which Dunnigan acknowledged would put tremendous strain on staff and committee members.

Maryann Martindale, executive director of the progressive-leaning Alliance For A Better Utah, said she would like to see the committee talk less and get to work. After the holidays and legislative session, committee members will be into their re-election campaigns with the matter still unresolved.

"What I’d like to see the committee do, and what I think the public would like to see the committee do, is a thorough, in-depth investigation with some expediency to it," she said. "And I don’t think those two things are exclusive, and the committee seems to think they are."
