SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- The Utah Transit Authority runs into a funding problem over the proposal to build one or two TRAX stations.

U-T-A officials says they received a letter yesterday from the Federal Transit Authority telling them they money they requested to build the stations isn't available. U-T-A had asked for 13-point-five (M)million dollars to 16-point-seven (M)million dollars.

U-T-A will now have to reapply for the money from a different federal source.

U-T-A spokesman Justin Jones says, despite the recent financial setback, they will still build and plan to get it down by 2007.

A decision has not been made yet on whether to build one or two stations between the Delta Center and hub.
