Can Congress return to civility?

Local News

Salt Lake City, Utah- (ABC4 News) – During a farewell speech on the floor of the U.S. Senate, Utah Senator Orrin Hatch challenged his colleagues to be more civil.

Former state Representative Holly Richardson and former state Senator Scott Howell debate that and some of the other big stories of the week in this week’s Inside Utah Politics Panel discussion.
