Since 2014, Robert Spendlove has represented District 49 in the Utah House. That includes Sandy and parts of Cottonwood Heights. He serves on the Health, Transportation and Public Education Appropriation Committee.

As an economist for Zion's Bank, he knows a lot about fiscal policy and taxes. We talk with Spendlove about Sandy's growth, state tax reform and, his current legislative passion: promoting the growth of the autonomous vehicle industry.
