“When was the decision made for a special session and what is the protocol for notifying the public? The governor’s office has confirmed the special session, but the agenda is still pending. When will the legislators be able to read the items on the agenda for a meeting less than a week away? “Paul Edwards, Hebert’s deputy chief of staff, confirmed Wednesday the governor will call lawmakers into special session Sept. 20. Though Edwards could not confirm exactly what is on the agenda because it’s still being sorted out, he did say “there may be some discussion around an item or two related to Operation Rio Grande” — the massive, multi-agency effort to tackle crime in Salt Lake City’s most troubled neighborhood and help the state’s most needy. Edwards also confirmed there will be “a couple of items that will be unrelated” to homelessness or Operation Rio Grande, but he couldn’t elaborate on them yet.””
