For more than a hundred years, people have walked along the canal trails in Cache Valley. Dozens of dirt paths wind through the valley and are used for jogging and biking. These trails connect communities together and community leaders want to preserve the trails.

Some Utah lawmakers want to phase out a $2,000 tax credit that homeowners can receive for installing rooftop solar panels. The credit costs the state budget under $1 million annually. By the end of this year, the credit will amount to $20 million dollars.
