2015 Legislative wrap-up with the Salt Lake Tribune


The 2015 Utah Legislature made history with the success of an LGBT anti-discrimination law, approved a gas tax hike after years of wrangling and passed criminal justice reforms — but failed to agree on a path to expand health care coverage for the state’s poorest residents.

To explore the highs and lows of the session — and what’s next — The Salt Lake Tribune held a town hall, “What Happened on the Hill: A Legislative Wrap Up” at 7 p.m. Monday at Salt Lake’s Main Library, 210 E. 400 South.

Tribune political reporter Robert Gehrke discussed the issues with legislative leaders House Speaker Greg Hughes, R-Draper; House Minority Whip Rebecca Chavez-Houck, D-Salt Lake City; Sen. Ann Millner, R-Ogden; and Sen. Jim Dabakis, D-Salt Lake City.
