The Governor’s Office of Economic Development, or GOED, is collecting data about how Utahns feel about Daylight Saving Time.
More than 30 people gathered at the Clark Planetarium in downtown Salt Lake City to voice their opinion about Daylight Saving Time. A majority of those attending said they’d prefer to move to standard time year round like Arizona. Many who made comments expressed similar ideas to those of Provo resident Ed Bernsen.
The Governor’s Office of Economic Development announced new tax incentives for three companies on Thursday. One is doTerra, a company that makes essential oils – plant extracts that it sells through a network of independent distributors. It’s promised to bring 330 new jobs to its company headquarters in Pleasant Grove in product testing and development, customer support and other positions. For that, it will get 16-point-6 million dollars in tax credits over ten years.
