Lawmakers call it a silent epidemic as an alarming number of children are sexually abused but don’t feel safe enough to ask for help.


A bipartisan bill in the House would require sexual-abuse education so kids can learn the difference between good touch and bad touch and connect to resources if they feeln they’re being abused. Republican Rep. Christina Hagan of Alliance says kids don’t speak out because they’re afraid of what their attackers might do.

After a fiscal year that showed budget estimates were off for 11 months, a pair of Republican lawmakers wants to change up the budget-making process. They want to create a panel to look at the state’s economic forecast on a more consistent basis. As Statehouse correspondent Andy Chow reports, this could ultimately shift power from the governor’s office.

Republican Rep. Christina Hagan wants to create a financial outlook council that can alert lawmakers of important economic indicators, both good and bad.
