A Utah Congressman snubs Democrats during a visit to the state capitol. Taxpayers foot the bill for a secret construction project at the private home of Gov. Spencer Cox. After final approval of a bill at the legislature, schools will have to seek the governor's OK to shift to online learning because of COVID-19. And a Park City school teacher says she was forced out of her job after she reported a student had inappropriately touched girls.
