Utah's 2017 General Legislative Session convened January 23rd at the State Capitol in Salt Lake City. Utah's 104 legislators, consisting of 29 Senators and 75 Representatives, meet in a 45 day annual session that concludes March 9.
UPA will be present and active on Capitol Hill each day of the Session, monitoring issues that affect Utah's petroleum industry and engaging on the key bills of concern to UPA Members. Legislation affecting our industry is expected in the areas of taxation, environment, public lands, human resources and likely others.
We welcome your participation in the legislative process through keeping up to date with UPA's Legislative Report and letting us know how any proposed bills will affect your company. UPA holds a weekly legislative conference call to provide updates and discuss strategy in defending and promoting Utah's oil and gas industry's interests. More information is available on our Legislative Committee page.
