Bob Bernick and Bryan Schott break down the latest Utah political headlines.

On this post-Thanksgiving edition of the podcast:

  • Lawmakers are getting pressure from their constituents over tax reform because legislative leaders haven't done a good job explaining why it's needed.
  • The state is headed for another big budget surplus next year. 
  • The world turns upside down as the Utah Taxpayer's Association supports a tax hike in Utah County.
  • Utah election officials are bracing for big voter turnout numbers next year.
  • Supporters will try to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment next year, but don't expect it to pass the legislature.
  • Utah moves to ban conversion therapy.
  • Impeachment marches forward.
  • Republicans think Donald Trump is a better president than Abraham Lincoln.

Plus, Bryan is looking for people who want to discuss the HBO show, Watchmen.
