As state legislators gear up for another 45 days on Capitol Hill, we’re handicapping the 2018 Utah Legislative session and gauging the state’s political winds with the help of a panel of local reporters.

Thursday, as lawmakers gear up for another 45 days on Capitol Hill, we’re previewing the 2018 Utah Legislative session. We’ll gauge the political winds blowing through the Beehive State and handicap some of the bills legislators have already filed. We’ll also try to forecast what else might come up in the next seven weeks, such as tax reform, education funding, sex education, and public transit. Doug will be joined by a panel of local reporters, and we hope you’ll join us, too.
