(KSL News) Utah's voucher plan has been rejected by voters. So, what happens to the money put aside for it?

Legislators set aside $9.3 million out of the general fund for the voucher program when they approved it last January. However, now that the plan won't be implemented, many feel that the money should be given to public schools.

Some legislators say that is unlikely to happen, though. They say the money will likely go to road projects because that is where it would have been allotted in the first place.
