LDS church changes impact higher education in Utah, Arizona

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints has lowered the age of missionaries. That has led Utah's legislature to propose a bill to modify how many out-of-state students are eligible to go to a Utah college or university.

David Buhler, Utah's Commissioner of Higher Education, talks about the new policy's impact on the state. State Senator Rich Crandall discusses whether Arizona will be affected and could take advantage of the changes.
