Revisiting Air Quality In The 2020 Utah Legislative Session On Thursday's Access Utah

Utah Stories

Today on Access Utah, a look at state air quality legislation. This episode was first broadcast in March during the final week of the 2020 session of the Utah Legislature.

What’s being done to help clean up our air? Our guests will include Rep. Patrice Arent, D-Salt Lake City; Rep. Stephen Handy, R-Layton; and Rep. Suzanne Harrison, D-Draper. We’ll also talk with Thomas Holst, Senior Energy Analyst with the Kem C. Gardner Policy Institute at the University of Utah, which has developed a Utah Roadmap on Climate and Air Quality. We would love to hear from you. What can be done; what should be done to improve air quality? How are you dealing with air pollution? Are things getting better or worse where you are?
