(KSL News) Salt Lake County officials are reconsidering funding for rail projects following a legislative audit.

The audit found the county was giving an unfair financial edge to commuter rail projects at the expense of fixing and improving roads.

Now, the head of the Salt Lake County Council of Governments has called for a new vote on how to allocate money to transportation projects in the county.

If the county reallocates the money, it could mean a delay in light-rail lines to the west side of the valley and a shortening of the route for a commuter rail along the Wasatch Front.
