2020 Legislative Session Wrap-Up

Mar 12, 2020

Lawmakers wrapped the 2020 Utah legislative session at the stroke of midnight on Thursday. Friday morning, we're looking back at the past 45 days to discuss what did – and didn’t – happen on Capitol Hill this year.

Overall, 2020 was a slim session in terms of high profile, controversial bills. Yes, there was the surprising move to decriminalize polygamy, but there were some other big issues, like education funding, abortion and affordable housing. Guest host and RadioWest producer Benjamin Bombard and our panel of journalists will sift through the issues and ask what they mean for Utahns.

GUESTS: 

  • Sonja Hutson, politics and government reporter at KUER
  • Robert Gehrke, columnist for the Salt Lake Tribune
  • Benjamin Wood, government reporter for the Salt Lake Tribune
