A clear majority of Utah voters are willing to spend $56 million to build sports facilities in anticipation of the Winter Olympics coming to Salt Lake City by the year 2002. In a statewide referendum Tuesday, a proposal to divert 1/32 of revenues from the state sales tax over the next 10 years to construct bobsled and luge runs, a speed-skating oval and a ski jump passed with 57% of the vote. With 99% of the precincts reporting, the count was 211,385 for the measure and 161,736 opposed.
