    Details: Each January, the State Legislature goes into session to consider new laws that directly affect Utah businesses of all sizes. Join us on Wednesday, January 21 for a special Vest Pocket advocacy event in which political expert Frank Pignanelli will highlight some of the most impactful legislation to be debated on the Hill this winter, including the following:

    • a law that would make public all complaints about businesses filed with the Utah Department of Consumer Protection
    • legislation to increase the state gas tax to fund transportation and increase sales taxes
    • legislation that would make changes to business registration requirements
    • legislation for greater transparency and accountability in the Governor’s Office Economic Development (GOED)
    • state prison relocation and siting
    • possible Medicaid expansion in Utah
    • legislation for improving air quality

    Frank will also briefly discuss how business owners can become more directly involved in the legislative process at the grass roots level. Finally, Frank will likely offer some humorous observations about the people and processes that interact on Utah’s Capitol Hill and which make politics in Utah very interesting.

    A significant goal of Vest Pocket has been and remains to help give business owners a strong voice in state and local government. Our attention to, and participation in, the legislative process is essential. Please join us the evening of January 21.
