On the opening day of the legislature we talked briefly with Utah Governor Gary Herbert. We continue that discussion in the second half of Tuesday’s Access Utah. We’ll talk about the economy, education, air quality and the proper balance of federal and state power.
Private-sector leaders are proposing changes to Utah’s liquor laws. In a report released Friday, the Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control Review Committee, which was convened by Democrats, presented a series of recommendations to address waste and mismanagement going on inside the agency. The report suggests Utah would benefit from re-opening some discussion on some liquor laws, but as KCPW’s Jessica Gail reports, not everyone is open to the idea.
Gardening is back! Today on the first half of Access Utah, Jerry Goodspeed joins us from Odgen. He's the Weber County Horticulture Specialist with the USU extension. We'll discuss catalog ordering and some unique plants that might find a home in your garden this year.
On the second half, we'll feature some Sundance reviews and interviews from UPR's Sheri Quinn, Steven Smith, and Tom Williams.

Last week, 500 tacos appeared at the mayor's office in East Haven, Conn. But they weren't intended for a casual luncheon.
Instead, this truckload of tacos was meant to be a symbol of discontent. An immigration reform group sent the fare in protest to what they said was an insensitive comment from Mayor Joseph Maturo in reference to Latinos and tacos.
