Tuesday, as the sun sets on 2015, we’re discussing the biggest Utah news stories of the year. It was a year full of notable political and cultural developments. Salt Lake City elected a new mayor and was chosen as the new home for the state prison. Fights continued over both public lands and election reform. Gay marriage advocates rejoiced over a historic Supreme Court ruling, and the LDS Church adopted new restrictions on gay members. There’s a lot to talk about, so we hope you’ll join us.
