The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints permanently donates thousands of acre-feet of water to the Great Salt Lake. Zions Bank stock plummets in the wake of the Silicon Valley Bank collapse, but the Zions’ CEO says your money is safe.

Joining me today are Salt Lake Tribune water and land use reporter Leia Larsen, real estate reporter Tony Semerad, public lands and environment reporter Brian Maffly, and opinion editor George Pyle.
