Governor Unveils Budget at Davis Technical College


Surrounded by CNC machines, Governor Gary Herbert unveiled his $16.7 billion budget at Davis Technical College Wednesday, December 13. Included in his budgeted allocations (72 percent of new revenue will go toward education) is $33.4 million that Gov. Herbert recommends the Legislature designate for a new Allied Health Building on Davis Tech campus. The Allied Health Building is a longtime goal at Davis Tech, where programs, already at capacity in the School of Health Professions, struggle to meet demand. Acknowledging the need for Utah's increasing population to become educated and competitive in a global economy, Gov. Herbert declared 2018 the "Year of Technical Education."
