2022 Session - Week 5

Scroll down


Dear Friends and Neighbors,

We just completed week five of the 2022 Legislative Session! 160 bills have been passed by both the Senate and the House. I look forward to reviewing and discussing additional legislation during the two weeks we have left of this year’s session. It is an honor to represent you, please continue to reach out with your feedback and concerns!

Another busy week at the Capitol! It was an exciting week as S.B. 49, State Film

Production Incentives Amendments passed in the Senate and is now in the House for

further consideration. This week I presented SCR8 to a group for Agriculture Day at the

Capitol. We were able to talk about the important work of the agriculture industry. I also met with many students this week. Students visited from Heber, Roosevelt, Vernal, and Duchesne. This week high schoolers from the Utah All-State High School Art Show came and displayed their work. One of my constituents, Ethan Rude, was honored. I saw his great artistic talent. He also joined me on the Senate floor for a few minutes.

Senate Art Scholarships

Every year, high school students across the state submit artwork to the Utah All-State High School Art Show. This year, the Utah Senate awarded scholarships, made possible by generous donors, to six students who excelled in the competition. On Thursday, we recognized the Senate scholarship recipients and other participants on the Senate floor. I was amazed by these students’ wonderful talent, especially at such a young age. You can view a virtual gallery of the submissions here.
