Utah’s House Minority leader previews 2019 legislative session

Local News

The 2019 legislative session in Utah begins on Monday, January 28th, and dozens of bills have already been filed to change Utah laws.

 Utah’s House Minority Leader Brian King joined us on Good Morning Utah to better understand what to expect in the coming weeks.

Among the top priorities for democratic lawmakers this session will be Proposition 3, or the expansion of Medicaid.

“We want to make sure Utahns get what they voted for in November,” said Rep. King. “We want to bring back hundreds of millions of dollars for the federal government to ensure that the people who don’t have access to affordable health care right now, and are in the greatest need, get that access.”

Regarding the partial government shutdown, Rep. King says Utah leaders should lend their voice to urge congress at the federal level to put an end to the funding lapse, bringing relief to the tens of thousands of Utah workers who are affected.

Utah’s new Speaker of the House, Brad Wilson, will join us on Good Morning Utah on Friday, January 25th.
