Calling it "an urgent necessity," Utah Physicians for a Healthy Environment is asking state lawmakers and the governor to buy air purifiers for classrooms statewide. RadioACTive spoke with UPHE's Dr. Brian Moench and Dr. Tom Nelson about the request — estimated to cost as much as $40 million — and how to pay for it.
