Utah County is growing at a rapid rate and that is expected to continue in coming decades as the No. 2 largest county in the state draws closer to Salt Lake County.

Utah Company Had Big Hopes for Trump Era, but Its Gun Silencers Remain Hard to Buy

But as the Trump administration has foundered with Russian investigations and other controversies, Waldron’s initial optimism has diminished. Business has, too, as potential customers apparently wait to see if they can avoid the current $200 tax and eight-month delay for paperwork.
