SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Utah expects the federal stimulus package to bring about $4 billion to the state.

Gov. Gary Herbert's budget director told a legislative committee that state agencies have been awarded about $1.3 billion in stimulus funding so far. About $350 million in stimulus funds has already been committed, mostly for road construction.

Budget director John Nixon says Utah is doing better than most states at getting the money earmarked and spent.

The state expects about $1.7 billion in grants and economic stabilization funds. About $2 billion is expected to remain in the state from a federal tax cut of $400 for individuals or $800 for couples.
