Listen live at 5:15 p.m.: KSL at Night host and political consultant Taylor Morgan shares his thoughts on the special session of the House.

SALT LAKE CITY — Gov. Spencer Cox announced Friday that there will be a special session of the Legislature next week. The special session will be held on Wednesday, June 17. The governor's office said Juneteenth will be observed on Monday.

A press release from Cox's office said the meeting would address “several pressing state matters.”

According to the Governor's proclamation, seven items will be discussed during the meeting.

Special session of Parliament to discuss the coal-fired power plant in the Delta

The first item on the agenda is an amendment to a bill that would allow the state to take control of a coal-fired power plant near Delta, Utah.

Back in May, KSL at Night co-host Rusty Canon made a statement on the matter.

“It's an 1,800-megawatt coal-fired power plant, a pretty big one. Essentially, this plant keeps the lights on in Los Angeles. It's a big energy market.”

California stated that it was moving toward natural energy and no longer wanted coal energy.
