Fighting For Utah
Over the past several decades, the federal government has regularly overstepped its constitutional role — imposing burdensome regulations, and acting against the best interests of Utah. From mismanagement of federal lands, to unrealistic environmental standards imposed on our state, Utahns have had enough. Joining us today to discuss more about how the Legislature is pushing back against federal overregulation, as well as his joint resolution rejecting a proposed land exchange with the Federal Government, is Assistant Majority Whip, Representative Casey Snider.
For Utah Students and Teachers
Utah is proud to be home to the best teachers and the brightest students in the nation. Investing in education is the best way to invest in the future generation, and future prosperity of our state, which is why the Legislature is putting students, parents, and teachers first. Joining us in this episode to talk more about how we’re advancing education for Utah students and teachers is the chair of our Higher Education Appropriations Subcommittee, Karen Peterson.
For Utah Energy
Utah is renowned for its all-of-the-above energy approach that welcomes traditional and renewable energy sources as well as new and innovative energy systems. We want to ensure that generations of Utahns can continue to enjoy reliable, affordable, and dispatchable power now and into the future. Joining us in this episode to discuss his proposed legislation to create a statewide energy plan and accompanying policy is Representative Colin Jack.
For Utah Families
Researchers credit Utah’s tight-knit families and historically high birth rates with fostering the state’s economic might and high quality of life. However, we’re not immune to national trends of declining emphasis on the family. Joining us to talk more about his joint resolution surrounding the success sequence, as well as what the Legislature plans to do to help support Utah families, is Representative Tyler Clancy.
For Utah: House Majority 2024 Policy Priorities
Each year, the House Majority Caucus prepares for the upcoming Legislative session by identifying its key policy priorities — what we most want to accomplish to benefit our state. Over the last year, our Legislators have worked tirelessly to identify problems and drafting policy solutions for Utah. This session, the Majority Caucus has identified four key areas of focus: People, Resources, Accountable Government, and Future. Here to discuss these policy priorities and what they mean for Utahns is House Majority Leader, Jefferson Moss.
With elections just around the corner, Utahns are filling out their ballots and rushing to the polls. As Americans, the ability to vote is one of our greatest privileges, which is why it is critical we ensure our state has safe, secure, and reliable elections. In Utah, we are fortunate to have incredibly efficient and reliable election systems and joining us today to discuss what sets our system apart from other states, as well as what’s being done to protect against voter fraud in Utah, is the state Director of Elections, Ryan Cowley and Senior Audit Supervisor Jake Dinsdale with the Office of the Legislative Auditor General.
I took some time today to listen to your show!! Utah, house of representatives, podcast, is a fantastic podcast with great info, advice, and perspectives. You won't regret listening to and learning from the podcast.
I enjoy this podcast and all the knowledge it gives me about the political happening of my state. Thank you Utah reps.
Good not great.
If you’re looking for interviews of important people, this is a great place to find them. If you’re looking for any reasonable conversation about pros and cons *of anything* this isn’t it.
Ran by the house GOP, for the House GOP. Even if you are right-leaning, this isn’t that interesting. Its information if you’re not paying any attention to legislature, but if you are, don’t expect to find much new info. Pulpit for talking points you’ll find elsewhere.
At this point would rather just have a place to listen to committee hearings on the podcast app.
