    Utah votes Five Million to Save the Salt

    According to Land Speed Louise, Utah voters agreed that the state of Utah should spend $5 million on improving and conserving the Bonneville Salt Flats. Now, we'll see if it really happens....

    Good to hear that that passed! Like Stude said, it's a start. The current mining company has been somewhat better than the previous potash companies but as I understand it there's a huge stash of salt from previous mining piled in the wrong place so the need is to redistribute the salt back onto the flats. The current mining company helps a little but it's not a mess that they made so this legislation should help to turn the piled up salt into a slurry and pump it back out on the flats - hope it works. Or I guess each racer could bring a 5 pound bag of Morton's and spread it around.......

    It's a start. Legislation is needed to stop the mining of the salt, and the return of what's left after they've pulled the potash out of the salt.

    The other big question: Is that going to be enough? I mean, there's also the "how much goes towards administration and useless overhead" but that's kinda common for any gov't project.

    I'll likely never get a chance to race on the salt, but it'd be terribly sad if we lost the ability to do so.
