This week Utah NOW presents the Governor's
Monthly News Conference. Tune in to hear
Governor Jon M. Huntsman, Jr. comment on the economic forecast and proposed
budget for Utah in 2009...how much Public Education will receive and where that
funding will go, and if other programs will have a short fall in funding.
The governor also comments on other issues...including the recent statements of State Senator Buttars, Utah accepting more radioactive waste, and the current Utah Legislature bills dealing with illegal immigration.
It wasn't so long ago that Utah lawmakers created a progressive series of policies designed to accommodate the reality of illegal immigrants in the state. But now legislators are having second thoughts.
This week on Utah NOW we are exploring the latest in the debate of illegal immigration and asking how you balance the rule of law with compassion.
This week - PBS is re-broadcasting its groundbreaking documentary on The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints - 'The Mormons'.
We're taking the opportunity to re-visit our hour-long Utah NOW on the subject - where we talk about the series and gauge reaction to this portrait of the faith.
This week on Utah NOW - we'll remember Gordon B. Hinckley, one of the most influential presidents in the history of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
Hinckley directed an era of unprecedented growth and openness for his church. We'll talk about his life, his gifts as a leader and the future challenges for the faith without him.
