Governor: Budget blueprint won’t touch Medicaid expansion
Health » Herbert says the program likely will be a ‘‘wash’’ financially for Utah.

• Herbert said safety of the Union Pacific trestle — which the train company says is deteriorating and it would like to replace — is a priority and the state should do what it can to ensure it doesn’t become a hazard.

• The governor said he remains very concerned about the health impacts of the Stericycle waste incinerator in North Salt Lake. The state is continuing to monitor the plant daily and is conducting a study of the health impacts — the first phase of which found no detriments to health. It has shared information with the Environmental Protection Agency for its review that could ultimately lead to criminal charges.

• He said the state will have more money when he releases his budget proposal next month, although uncertainty created by Congress will mean it’s less than it otherwise would be. Most of the new money would go to education, he said.
