(KSL News) -- Governor Olene Walker today announced a special oversight committee to look into Utah's participation in the Multi-state Anti-Terrorism Information Exchange, or MATRIX.
Governor Olene Walker: “Probably the number one priority, as far as I’m concerned, is the guarantee of citizen privacy.”
MATRIX has raised concerns across the nation because of the potential for abuse of the information it will collect about people.
The Deseret Morning News revealed yesterday that former Governor Mike Leavitt signed the state up for the pilot program without telling lawmakers or citizens.
