(KSL News) -- A committee looking into Utah's involvement with a multistate crime-fighting tool met today for the first time.

The Multistate Anti-Terrorism Information Exchange is an ultra-fast way for investigators to get information about suspects. But MATRIX raises privacy concerns.

Governor Walker pulled Utah out of the program two weeks ago and appointed the committee to review MATRIX and decide if it's right for Utah.

Ex-Governor Mike Leavitt signed the state up for the program without lawmakers knowing about it.
