The line items are as follows: USTAR Administration, University of Utah Research, Utah State University Research, and Technology Outreach.

Appropriation Overview

A new line item titled USTAR Research Teams was created during the 2013 General Session, to track separately, pass-through funds to the University of Utah and to Utah State University for research teams.
