The handle on the sausage grinder is whirling at a feverish pace, which must mean that the end of the Legislature’s General Session is coming to its conclusion. If you’re still looking to storm the Hill, it’s not too late to rally for the defeated sex-ed bill. Even if a specific issue isn’t grabbing you, the final days of the session always promise a flurry of 11th-hour bills that may light your lobbying fire. For a change of pace, check out the Salt Lake City Planning Commission meeting to learn about the new sports center and the North Temple Viaduct.

March for Sexual Education
Saturday, March 6
When the Senate Education Committee refused to even debate a bill allowing for more comprehensive sex-education in Utah schools, it left many in attendance speechless … literally. Without debate, there was no public comment, much to the chagrin of people who had worked for months on the issue. If you have something to say on the subject, however, you can still join this march that will start at the Salt Lake City Main Library and end at the Capitol.
Salt Lake City Main Library, 210 E. 400 South, March 6, 2 p.m.

Salt Lake City Planning Commission
Wednesday, March 10
The trifecta of major city developments will be discussed at tonight’s Planning Commission meeting. Whether your issue is the proposed sports complex at 2223 North Rose Park Lane, the controversial Public Safety Complex between 400 and 500 South at 300 East, or the North Temple viaduct, there’s something for everybody.
Salt Lake City & County Building, 451 S. State, March 10, 5:45 p.m., e-mail slcplanningdivision@slc.gov for more info.

Eleventh-Hour Legislative Shenanigans
Wednesday & Thursday, March 10-11
In a session filled with angry teabag message bills, it makes you wonder what legislation isn’t being shouted out loud but just whispered about in the last minutes of the session. Watch the last-minute legislatin’ and see what bills might slip past when nobody’s looking.
Utah Capitol, 350 N. State, March 10-11, le.state.ut.gov
