Salt Lake City native Nathan Chen wins Olympic gold in Beijing. Homeless advocates call for a shelter to serve the elderly and infirm. A proposal that would limit reporters’ access to the Senate floor advances at the Legislature. Community health workers in Utah would gain formal certification under a new bill. And there is a push to prevent public employers from punishing a worker for having a medical cannabis card.
