Jan 29, 2021

A Utah lawmaker pursues impeaching Attorney General Sean Reyes.

Sandy Democratic Rep. Andrew Stoddard said his filing was over Reyes's efforts challenging the outcome of the 2020 presidential election and in response to his ties to the Republican Attorneys General Association and their "involvement in the domestic terror attack on our Nation’s Capitol." 

Meanwhile, Utah's U.S. senators are split on the upcoming Senate trial of former president Donald Trump. However, Sen. Mike Lee and Sen. Mitt Romney are far more united when it comes to trying to curb National Monument designations in Utah.

Plus the latest from the state legislature, including the bill to let Utahns carry a concealed firearm without a permit.
