Monday, we're looking back at Utah's 2013 legislative session. It wasn't full of fireworks and brawls, but there were some interesting debates. A freshman representative tried to take the decision on Medicaid expansion away from the Governor's office, the Senate haggled for weeks over moving the State Prison and it remains to be seen if the Governor will veto a bill that does away with concealed carry permits. Doug and his panel of reporters and observers assess what happened and what it could mean moving forward.

Guests:
