Speaker Hughes statement in support of Salt Lake County press conference concerning jail beds

SALT LAKE CITY –  Speaker Greg Hughes issued the following statement regarding the Salt Lake County press conference to announce funding for jail beds.

“As I stated in my opening remarks this past legislative session, homelessness is a statewide issue and every community has a role to play. We must protect the most vulnerable amongst us by arresting the wolves who prey upon them. Today’s announcement is another key step to address this issue. I’m encouraged and supportive of the plan to address the jail bed situation in Salt Lake County and remain a committed partner in solving this crisis.” – Utah House Speaker Greg Hughes.
