One of the odder things about Utah's 45-day legislative session is the closed caucus. It’s perfectly legal under Utah law, but only one party routinely closes caucus meetings to the public—Republicans. They are criticized routinely for conducting the people’s business behind closed doors and generally keeping silent about it. Last week, something new – they held a press conference. Just one question—why close the caucus if you’re just going to hold a press conference? Lara Jones talks with Jenn Gonnelly of the League of Women Voters of Utah about the incident.
