Based on our grass-roots efforts, Deseret News editors have identified five key issues that matter to Utah families. These issues include early childhood education, college and career readiness, economic development, health care and well-being, and intergenerational poverty.

These issues are often interrelated and essential to continued prosperity. We present those issues to you with a promise that our legislative coverage will center on those things that matter most to you.
