This afternoon, the Legislative audit subcommittee met to discuss the findings of two recently completed audit reports. The first focuses on the Park City School District and the second helps identify 12 key issues facing the state.
The Teen Center Project
Across the state, hundreds of thousands of students are heading back to school. But for those students who may be experiencing homelessness or other economic disadvantages, this can be a particularly trying time. To help better address the needs of these students, the Legislature has allocated funding that can be used towards the creation of “Teen Centers” within schools. One of the leading organizations behind this movement is the Utah based advocacy group, the Policy Project. Joining us in this episode to discuss how these teen centers will help students is the Director of Policy for the Policy Project, Mary Catherine Perry.
The Future of Utah Energy
Utah’s measured, all-of-the-above energy policy has powered decades of prosperity by providing some of the most reliable and affordable energy in the country. Recently, the Utah Legislature has been applying common sense solutions to push back on federal regulatory overreach that threatens our ability to provide power to our state, fuel our economy, and maintain a high quality of life for the people of our state. Joining us today to discuss some of the challenges we are facing in our energy sector, is the Chair of the Public Utilities, Energy, and Technology Interim Committee, Representative Carl Albrecht.
Each year during the general legislative session, college students from schools across the state are selected to intern for our Representatives. This is a unique experience that allows them to get an up close and personal look at the legislative process while working on-on-one with their assigned Representatives. Joining us today to talk more about this experience are two of our House interns from this previous session, Clara Eccles and Anna Van Noy.
The Future of the Utah State Capitol
Utah is fortunate to have one of the most beautiful Capitol buildings in the country. Though it serves many purposes, ultimately this building belongs to the people of our state — and there is a whole team of dedicated civil servants working behind the scenes to make sure our citizens can continue to enjoy this building for generations to come. Recently, our Capitol plaza has undergone some changes, including the ongoing construction of the newly reimagined North Building. Joining us in this episode to discuss the future of our Capitol Complex is the Director of the Capitol Preservation Board, Dana Jones and the Assistant Director over Special Projects, Michael Ambre.

I took some time today to listen to your show!! Utah, house of representatives, podcast, is a fantastic podcast with great info, advice, and perspectives. You won't regret listening to and learning from the podcast.
I enjoy this podcast and all the knowledge it gives me about the political happening of my state. Thank you Utah reps.
Good not great.
If you’re looking for interviews of important people, this is a great place to find them. If you’re looking for any reasonable conversation about pros and cons *of anything* this isn’t it.
Ran by the house GOP, for the House GOP. Even if you are right-leaning, this isn’t that interesting. Its information if you’re not paying any attention to legislature, but if you are, don’t expect to find much new info. Pulpit for talking points you’ll find elsewhere.
At this point would rather just have a place to listen to committee hearings on the podcast app.
