With the state growing at breakneck speed and tax reform suddenly at issue once again, Utah's legislators have a lot to do in the next 45 days.

Call it the tax reform that wasn’t. Facing a chorus of opposition from voters — over 150,000 of them — Utah’s government leaders on Thursday announced they will repeal the tax reform package legislators passed just over a month ago. It remains to be seen whether tax reform will be on the docket during the 2020 legislative session, which begins Monday. If so, it’ll join a raft of issues, from homelessness to housing affordability, education, air quality, even mail-order wine. Friday, a panel of guests joins us to preview the session and explain what it all means for Utahns.
