anything less. [ applause ] for all the challenges utah faces, it is important to remember that there are 49 other states out there that would love to trade places with us. political gridlock is everywhere in this country. but here in utah we know how to come together. and in spite of our differences get things done. i believe there's never been a better time to live, to work, and to raise a family in this state. so to answer the question i posed earlier, the state of our state is strong. it's outstanding. but it's much more than that. the events of last week's tragedy with officer barney impacted all of us profoundly but equally important was the outpouring of public spirit we all witnessed.
