(KSL News) -- With voters set to consider a quarter-cent sales tax increase for transportation, various projects are seeking priority.

UTA wants funding for four light-rail lines: One to the airport, South Jordan's Daybreak, West Valley City, a line to Draper, as well as an extension commuter rail into Provo.

UTA says all four lines could be completed by 2016, but it depends on the balance between transit and highway funding.

Officials will meet today for the first time to begin establishing criteria to guide the prioritizing process.
