Best Overall State!
Utah was ranked Number 1 best overall State by U.S. News and World Report! Our commitment to innovation, education, fostering industry, and strengthening our economy are just a few of the reasons why this is such an amazing place to live, now and for generations to come. I am proud to call Utah home. You can check out the report at https://www.usnews.com/news/best-states/rankings?utm_medium=email&utm_source=govdelivery

They are open to the public, and you are able to participate both in person and virtually.

I also serve on the Natural Resources, Agriculture, and Environmental Quality Standing and Appropriations Committees. I also serve on the Legislative Water Commission and the Federalism Commission.
This spring, we are facing an increased risk of flooding all across our State. It’s important to monitor your local risk of flooding to help minimize damage in the event of a worst-case scenario. Go to https://beready.utah.gov/utah-hazards/flood/?utm_medium=email&utm_source=govdelivery to check your risk level and find some helpful flood preparedness resources.
House Spring Service Project
Each year, the House majority participates in a spring service project. This year, my colleagues and I are helping address flooding in our areas by volunteering to help fill sandbags and participating in other flood preparation activities. If you would like to get involved, check your city and county websites for volunteer opportunities.
