Good Tuesday morning from Salt Lake City

Thanks for reading Utah’s must-read daily political news rundown. Please encourage your friends and colleagues to sign up for our emails.

Here are the stories you need to pay attention to this morning:

  • Lawmakers convene for a special session Monday
  • Legislative leaders expect to see several gun-related bills during the 2020 session.
  • President Trump says the U.S. is “locked and loaded” to respond to an attack on a Saudi Arabian oil field.

Let’s talk!

We’ve started a discussion group on Facebook dedicated to Utah politics.
