What is the Utah Business PAC?

The Utah Business PAC is the political action committee (PAC) for the Salt Lake Chamber. A political action committee is an organization representing a specific cause or interest that raises funds to support political campaigns.

The Utah Business PAC provides financial support to candidates running for city, county and statewide offices who recognize the importance of economic and community prosperity and champion business success.

Federal law prohibits associations from using member dues for political contributions. Utah Business PAC is funded through voluntary, individual contributions from Chamber members only. We cannot accept contributions from non-Chamber members and non-U.S. citizens.

Utah Business PAC is registered with the state and, under the oversight of the Lieutenant Governor’s Office, will file regular reports detailing the financial activities of the PAC. Utah Business PAC complies with all state federal laws and regulations governing its operations.
