Politics Up Close: Herbert, Hatch on Economy & Jobs Speech

(KCPW News) Utah Governor Gary Herbert is continuing his push to promote Utah’s economy with a trip to New York City. Unemployment in the state is hovering around seven and a half percent. What’s his reaction to President Obama’s jobs speech Thursday night, and what plans does he have to offer Utahns who don’t have a job and put them back to work? Governor Herbert joined us on the phone this morning from New York City.


We also spoke with Senator Hatch to get his reaction to the President’s address.
