The tax reform bill that was passed in December by a special session of the Utah Legislature was soundly repudiated by a referendum drive that collected the required number of signatures before the regular session of the legislature began in January. Lawmakers subsequently repealed the tax reform bill. We wondered: what about now? Is there still a need for reform? What should happen next? What is likely to happen next? We’ll talk with the organizer of the referendum drive, Fred Cox. Our guests will also include Rep. Norm Thurston, R-Provo, a Republican who voted against the bill and two Democrats, Rep.Susan Duckworth, D-Magna, and Rep. Angela Romero, D-Salt Lake City.
In addition to tax reform, we’ll a talk about referendums and initiatives, a bill requiring clergy to report child abuse and neglect, and a Murdered and Missing Indigenous Women and Girls Task Force.
