September Interim and Long-Term Planning Conference
This past month, my colleagues and I took Interim meetings off Capitol Hill and down to beautiful St. George. I enjoyed meeting with and hearing from the people in Southern Utah. You can read the highlights of those Interim meetings at: https://le.utah.gov/interim/2023/pdf/00003963.pdf. This month’s Interim meetings will take place on October 10th and 11th at the Capitol. You can participate in person or online at le.utah.org.
While in St. George, we also met as a Legislature for a Long-Term Planning Conference, where we had the opportunity to learn about and discuss topics like transportation, housing affordability, water, and technology innovation. It’s important that we begin now to plan for the future.
Happiest State in the Nation
Utah was recently ranked the Happiest State in the Nation. To read more, go to: https://wallethub.com/edu/happiest-states/6959. There are many reasons why I am proud to call Utah home, from our beautiful landscapes to our unmatched opportunities, but I believe the thing that makes Utah truly special is our amazing people and communities. I am grateful for the opportunity to serve each of you.
Supporting our Educators
During this past session, my colleagues and I passed the largest single teacher pay raise in state history and teachers across Utah are already benefiting. In total, the Legislature allocated nearly $5.6 billion towards public education. We know that education is the key to upward mobility and I remain committed to setting our students and teachers up for success.

Beautiful Fall Weather
If you have not been in the mountains to see the beautiful fall colors, I encourage you to do so. Whether you’re hunting, or just viewing the colors, a trip to see the mountains and the fall colors is always a great thing to do with your family. Best wishes and success to those who have drawn hunting tags this fall.
