Politics Up Close: Sean Reyes Runs for Attorney General, State of Oil & Gas Drilling in Utah

Republican Attorney General Candidate Sean Reyes

(KCPW News) Republican Sean Reyes wants to be Utah’s next Attorney General. He counts among his accomplishments becoming one of the first minority attorneys in the state to make partner at a major law firm and co-founding an organization to help Utahns combat fraud. He joined us in the studio to talk about where he stands on the important issues.


And is Utah’s oil and gas industry suffering from excessive federal regulations? A new report by the western-based Headwaters Economics suggests not. We looked at the numbers to see if we can separate fact from fiction when it comes to domestic energy production in the west with Headwaters’ Mark Haggarty and Matt Garrington with the Checks and Balances Project.
