(Salt Lake City, UT) — A bill that would have provided iPads and tablet computers for all Utah students is dead. House Speaker Becky Lockhart says House and Senate leaders failed to strike a deal on funding the measure during budget talks. Lockhart says she wasn’t willing to raise taxes or accept full Medicaid expansion to fund the education technology plan.
