The 24th episode of the Take 2 podcast features 2News Anchor Heidi Hatch and former Speaker of the House Greg Hughes (R) and The Exoro Group’s Maura Carabello.
Topics the panel tackled include aerial fireworks that were legalized in the Utah Legislature in 2011. The discussion included sales doubling in the first year the aerial fireworks were permitted but now 8 years later if fires and air pollution are issues concerning enough to dial back the firework laws. Should we be able to blow stuff up because it’s patriotic?
Find out how the discussion played out in addition to the lively debate on these topics:
- MEDICAL MARIJUANA LAWSUITS: The state said it would pick 10 growers but ultimately chose 8. Now those who were not chosen were suing. The number dropped so Utah doesn’t end up with too much marijuana.
- MUELLER TESTIMONY: Rep. Rob Bishop said, “the book was better than the movie.” Is impeachment possible?
- UTAH NO. 2 IN LGBTQ SUPPORT NATIONALLY: 2018 poll just released by the Public Religion Research Institute, 77% of Utahn’s either favor or strongly favor “laws that would protect (LGBT) people against discrimination in jobs, public accommodations, and housing.” Surprising? The Legislature couldn’t ban conversion therapy this last session but 4 years ago passed the anti-discrimination bill.
- SLC MAYORAL RACE: Ballots are in the mail. Are voters fired up or is turnout going to be garbage? Free billboards for 3 candidates: Luz Escamilla, David Garbett, and David Ibarra. Did the PACs put them up?
