Situational awareness – September 19, 2019

Good Wednesday 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:

  • Utahns support laws to bar gun sales to those who have been deemed a danger by a mental health professional.
  • Reyes discusses the case against Google.
  • President Trump’s communications with a foreign leader prompted a whistleblower complaint over a “promise” he made during a telephone call.

Let’s talk!

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

Join here.
