Legislative priorities for the 2019 session

  • Promote a representative, accountable, and responsive open government system.
  • Promote an environment beneficial to life through the protection and wise management of natural resources in the public interest.
  • Promote social and economic justice and the health and safety of all Utahns.

LEGISLATIVE ADVOCACY:

Legislative advocacy is a cornerstone of the League of Women Voters. League advocacy is based on member study and agreement on selected issues and involves concerted efforts to achieve public policies consistent with League positions. League advocacy promotes or opposes specific pieces of legislation. We then use them to prioritize and track specific bills during the regular and interim sessions.

Utah Legislative Session:

Utah State has a comprehensive website that can be used to find your legislators, follow committees, track bills, watch and/or listen to sessions visit le.utah.gov

The Ten Minute Activist is a quick guide to the best way to provide your option. The League provides on-site training to interested community groups using the Ten Minute Activist presentation.

Legislative Update:

Monday-Thursday, 6 p.m., KRCL FM90.9. League provides an update on the 2019 legislative session. Listen in and join the conversation. If you can’t listen live, archived shows can be found on the Radioactive Soundcloud page.
