Utah House Speaker Becky Lockhart, Rep. Spencer Cox, R-Fairview, and Rep. Rebecca Chavez-Houck, D-Salt Lake City, joined Trib Talk's Jennifer Napier-Pearce for a live video chat in advance of Wednesday's GOP caucus to determine how to address alleged ethical violations by Utah Attorney General John Swallow.

Most recently, jailed entrepreneur Marc Sessions Jenson filed a 3rd District Court motion asking that the entire attorney general's office be barred from prosecuting the case against Jenson because the defendant alleges Swallow offered to use his influence to get the proposed $3.5 billion Mount Holly ski resort off the ground in exchange for a cabin and membership in the development.
