PODCAST: Take 2 – Utah legislature, AG Reyes impeachment hearing and more

KUTV’s Heidi Hatch hosts former Speaker of the House Greg Hughes and Maura Carabello of the Exoro Group in a new episode of Take 2. 

The panel dived into the Utah Legislative Session and the bills that will impact you:

Stalking Bill: A bill proposing changes to Utah’s stalking code was supported by the House Law Enforcement and Criminal Justice Committee, but victim advocates argue the change would make it harder for victims to get protection.https://kutv.com/news/local/legislator-defends-change-to-utahs-stalking-code-opposed-by-victim-advocates

In-person participation is back and why it matters: They were initially online.

Concealed Carry Permit restrictions: The bill in the Utah Legislature that would allow adults to carry a concealed firearm in public without a permit has cleared the House of Representatives and now moves to the Senate.

Blow-dry bar licenses: Blow dryers and curling irons are igniting a firestorm of debate on Utah’s Capitol Hill.

Bill to stop people from party swapping: Last summer, nearly 80,000 people registered as Republicans in Utah so they could vote in that party’s primary for governor.

AG Sean Reyes Impeachment hearing: Rep. Andrew Stoddard says an investigation is the only way to get details on Reyes’ post-election efforts on behalf of Trump must happen.

Utah Vaccination plans to allow people to get in line using the honor system: Future vaccine groups in Utah — who could be getting shots as early as March — will be determined by age and underlying health conditions.
