Angels in the Sweatbox
Updated: Aug 8, 2019
This week, things are a little bit more somber around the Sweatbox. We’re chatting about the recent tragedies in CA, TX, and OH. But, we also had the chance to sit down with Ogden Mayor candidate Angel Castillo about her vision for the city. We'll tell you this: Shane is SUPER interested in sidewalks.
Also: DON'T FORGET TO MAIL IN YOUR BALLOT THIS WEEK!
Listen to this week's episode here:
Two Mass Shootings in 24 Hours...
After the recent mass shooting at a food festival in Gilroy, CA, Americans experienced yet another barrage of bullets, this time in El Paso, TX. After going to bed with a heavy heart to that destructive shooting, the US woke up to news of a second incident, this time at nightclubs in Dayton, OH.
This got us wondering what has been done (or could be done) to mitigate some of these episodes. We learned about two pieces of legislation that have been languising in Mitch McConnell's "Legislative Graveyard" since February, when they both passed the Democratically-controlled House after the government shutdown finally ended.
Below are news articles about each:
Important to note: Rep. Rob Bishop voted against both pieces of legislation.
Call Sens. Romney and Lee to tell them you'd like to see the Senate Majority Leader at least bring these bills up for debate on the Senate floor.
