It may be chilly, but the legislative session is heating up. We have been extremely active the first two weeks of the session to make major strides on significant issues including advancing modernizing Utah’s tax system, efforts to improve educational outcomes and improving Utah’s regulation environment.
Our team has had dozens of meeting with legislators, testified on a number of bills and continues to monitor over one-hundred bills. We want to encourage you to remain actively involved during the session and reach to us with any questions or concerns.
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.
