Description

The Deseret News (Salt Lake City, UT) investigates Salt Lake's bid for the 2002 Winter Games and how taxpayers' money is being spent. The articles suggest private commercial developers are using Olympic road and structure development for their own ends. Deseret uncovers the possibility that taxpayers may not get back their muli-million dollar investment despite promises by bid supporters. The stories resulted in Utah's governor re-negotiating the terms to sell the state's winter sports facilities to bid supporters, 1994.
