Air Quality, Medicaid Expansion, and Economy Boost from the Sundance Film Festival

Jan 27, 2019, 9:12 PM | Updated: 9:24 pm

UTAH – The 2019 Utah Legislative session kicks off this week.

We are talking with legislative leadership about the issues you’re most concerned about—air quality, Medicaid expansion, immigration, propositions and more.

Federal workers will receive their back pay–but there’s a chance we end up right here again in three weeks.

And this week, the Utah political leadership is headed back to work as the 2019 legislative session kicks off Monday. To look ahead at the session–we talk to House Speaker Brad Wilson and Minority leader Representative Brian King.

From the Utah State Senate, Senate President Stuart Adams and Senate Minority leader Senator Karen Mayne join Doug Wright on set.

This is also the first weekend of the Sundance Film Festival in Park City and Salt Lake. Since 1985, the festival has drawn thousands of people.

The city begins prepping long before anyone even arrives. This year, filmmakers submitted a record 14-thousand movies from 152 countries.

Film fans will be able to see 112 feature length selections from 33 countries.

40% of all films were directed by one or more women; 36% were directed by one or more filmmaker of color; 13% by one or more people who identify as LGBTQIA. And all those films bring a lot of people, looking to spend money.

Vicki Varela from the Utah office of tourism answers Doug’s question on the economic impact of this festival, the costs associated.

Sunday Edition with Doug Wright is on Sundays at 9:00 a.m.
