The countdown continues in our series on the Utah Priorities Project, the Utah State Board of Education selects a new Superintendent, and Rocky Mountain Power announces a plan to help encourage the use of solar panels.

Democratic candidate for the U.S. Senate, Scott Howell was at the Olympus Hills Sinclair Gas Station today talking to voters about his energy plan.

Howell approached drivers as they pulled up to the gas pump and asked if they needed their windows washed, oil checked, or gas pumped. While helping out, he asked about concerns voters may have and broke down what his energy plan would look like if he defeats Republican incumbent Orrin Hatch. He says there is one key issue he’d like to see get more attention.
