Friday, we’re recapping the 2019 Utah Legislative session. It began when legislators raced to shrink voter-approved Medicaid expansion. Two bills to restrict abortion rights are now awaiting Governor Gary Herbert’s signature. There was lots of talk about a sweeping tax reform, but that never got off the ground. However, both a stronger hate crimes law and stronger beer were approved. Tribune columnist Robert Gehrke and KUER reporters Julia Ritchey and Nicole Nixon join Doug. We hope you will, too.
