Friday on RadioWest we’re joined by a panel of guests to discuss Utah’s 2014 legislative session. As in years past, the issues of air quality, alcohol control and the state’s education system got a lot of attention on the Hill. But the 60th Legislature saw its fair share of unique proceedings. The Speaker of the House and the governor exchanged volleys. A former attorney general was impugned by a damning report. Legislators significantly altered state elections. And it looks like Utah might have a new state tree.
