SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Utah is going straight to the U.S. Supreme Court to challenge a federal appeals court ruling that found states must allow gay couples to marry.
State Attorney General Sean Reyes' office said in a statement Wednesday it will file an appeal to the high court sometime in the next couple of weeks, rather than taking its case to the entire 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.
Some of the hot-button issues at the Utah legislature include education funding, gas taxes, and discrimination against the LGBT community. Rep. Kraig Powell discussed those with KPCW on Friday. Rick Brough has more.
A community conversation about whether the state legislature ought to approve Senate Bill 100, which would outlaw discrimination against the LGBT community across the state will be held Tuesday night. KPCW's Leslie Thatcher has more.
