Welcome to this weeks episode of the UPC show!

This week, Curtis welcomes UPC contributing editor Michael Iverson and UPC writer Alex Cragun into the studio.

In this week’s episode, we recap some of the latest bills to be analyzed by Utah Political Capitol, including Senator Jones’ (Democrat – Salt Lake City) plan to inject a large amount of money into public education, Senator Osmond’s (Republican – South Jordan) bill to remove requirements that home and private school students be held to state board of education standards, Senator Dayton’s (Republican – Orem) and Representative Powell’s (Republican – Heber City) various election reforms, and Senator Jenkins’ (Republican – Plain City) idea to improve air quality. 

Don’t forget, you can track all of the bills we have analyzed over at our Status of Flagged Bills page.

The gang also recapped the recent history and future of nondiscrimination laws and ordinances in the state and how, thanks to deficit hawks in Washington D.C., Utah will miss out on $35 million.

Today’s closing song: It’s All Been Done – Barenaked Ladies
