(KSL News) The State House overwhelmingly approved using $34 million of Salt Lake County tax money to fund the future Mountain View Corridor.

The diverted tax revenue would finance a $300-million bond to purchase land for the proposed highway, which is estimated to cost about $2 billion.

Officials at the Utah Department of Transportation are currently studying whether to build the highway as a toll road to pay for part of the cost.

The money will come from vehicle registration fees and sales taxes.
