As the 2017 General Legislative session begins, it is critical that the voice of business be heard as lawmakers consider the passage of critical legislation impacting our economy and quality of life. In Utah, at least 38 votes in the House, 15 votes in the Senate, and 1 signature from the Governor is required for legislation to be passed. Because the support of our membership is crucial to advancing the Chamber’s policy priorities, we will post weekly “38-15-1” updates featuring highlights from the 2017 legislative session, Chamber Priority Votes, bills worth watching and ways to take action.

Priority Votes

During the legislative session the Salt Lake Chamber Executive Board designates top priorities of the business community as Priority Votes. The Chamber’s Priority Votes are considered the most critical bills during the legislative session and are used to determine the Chamber’s Business Champion Awards. Below are the most recently declared priority votes.
There are currently no priority votes issued. 
More information on the Chamber’s Priorities can be found HERE.

Each week, the Chamber’s policy team tracks relevant bills by subject so you can stay up to date on legislation that impacts you and your business.
