SALT LAKE CITY -- A Utah legislative committee is asking for a broader investigation of a former transit board member who made millions on the sale of land adjacent to a future commuter rail station.
The Transportation Interim Committee says Wednesday they want a formal investigation into the business dealings of developer Terry Diehl (DEAL) while he served on the Utah Transit Authority board.
A 2010 audit said Diehl properly disclosed his conflicts and didn't participate in decisions about property he owned. The only possible crime was a misdemeanor for misuse of information.
The Utah Attorney General's office has an ongoing investigation but wouldn't comment on specifics.
Republican Rep. Greg Hughes of Draper, who sits on the UTA board, says the sale was private and outside of the board's purview.
