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.

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.
