2023: The Year Ahead
In 2022, our water levels continued to shrink, LDS Church practices came under the microscope and Utah’s Republican status was tested. So, now what, 2023?
Low water levels gave rise to policy shifts and urgent conversations about the Great Salt Lake and the Colorado River and water policy. Big news stories led to a closer look at tithing and the role of confession in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and the Lee v. McMullin race opened up a discussion about independent candidates in a red state. What changes will 2022 bring to 2023? We are taking a look at what local experts anticipate for the new year, speaking with Dan MCool, Bonnie Baxter, Robert Gehrke and Jana Reiss this Friday at 11 a.m. and again at 7 p.m.
