(KSL News) UTA is asking six Wasatch Front counties to raise taxes to offset budget reductions.

The Deseret Morning News reports UTA is asking for a .05 percent increase to help get back the $17 million lost by a food-tax reduction.

Transportation officials say the request would not bring in more revenues, just keep current revenues from dropping.

Utah County already approved the increase, and Weber and Salt Lake counties are considering it.

UTA is in preliminary discussions with Davis, Tooele and Box Elder Counties.
