Media Briefings

The Senate President hosts a brief, unvarnished Q & A with reporters each day during the legislative session, usually around 11:45 a.m. or 12 p.m.

You can watch live on and past recordings on the Senate YouTube Channel. Tweet questions to @UtahSenate.



In addition to the daily media briefing, every official action taken by the legislature is live streamed and archived. To find a video or audio stream, go to our legislative homepage at Click on the 'Audio | Video' tab in the middle of the page. Select the date. If a meeting is in progress, you'll see an indicator that the stream is live. Click on the meeting name. A new window will open.
