Chamber’s Session By the Numbers
2019 Legislator of the Year
Representative Carl Albrecht
As a former CEO of a rural energy company and a long-time public servant, sitting on various boards and commissions from education to natural resources, Representative Albrecht has a keen understanding of policy issues and their impact on rural Utah.
During the 2019 Legislative Session, he passed a number of bills to improve economic development opportunities for rural communities and address the unique workforce challenges facing rural Utahns. The Salt Lake Chamber worked closely with Rep. Albrecht to accomplish these shared priorities as he incorporated a business perspective into his legislation. The outcomes of his efforts will move the needle for economic development in rural Utah for years to come.
Rep. Albrecht sits on the Natural Resources, Agriculture and Environment committee and serves as the chair of the Public Utilities, Energy and Technology committee. His ability to collaborate and think strategically about Utah’s growth and champion economic development as a benefit to businesses across the state make him an outstanding legislator.
For these and many other reasons, the Salt Lake Chamber is pleased to present Representative Albrecht as the 2019 Legislator of the Year.
