As we continue to battle the ongoing waves of COVID-19, there are still thousands of Utah families who lack the protection of health care coverage. The good news is that starting November 1st, and lasting until January 15th, there is a new open enrollment period for the healthcare.gov health ...

Letter: Pass the freedom to vote act

Our democracy is at risk. The legislators’ rejection of the maps drawn by the Utah Independent Redistricting Commission (UIRC) left one to wonder whether they felt any obligation to honor the will of their constituents. The Better Boundaries initiative was the work of hundreds of volunteers ...

Letter: Romney leads on conservative climate solutions

The next generation of Utah Republicans is thankful to have practical conservative voices like Senator Mitt Romney’s joining the national conversation over how to best address and mitigate the impacts of our changing climate on our communities and economy. This is one of the most pressing ...
