As the 2016 Utah General Legislative Session begins. We are excited for what is to come.

Each year, at the beginning of the Session, the Chamber produces a public policy guide, which lays out the principles, positions and priorities of the Utah business community.

Yesterday, we unveiled the guide to our Board of Governors, Governor Gary Herbert, Utah State Senate President Wayne Niederhauser, and Speaker of the Utah House of Representatives Greg Hughes.

We believe that Utah is now at a crossroads that will require tapping the hallmarks of our current success.

As Utah’s business leader we believe we should leverage this crossroads to unleash our state’s industrious workforce, entrepreneurial spirit and innovative talents.

The 2016 Public Policy Guide outlines these pressing challenges and our agenda to solve them. This publication embodies our mission to stand as the voice of business, to support our members’ success and to champion community prosperity.

Join us in unleashing Utah’s economic potential.
