UPA Participates in Tax Policy Seminar

UPA is a founding member of the Utah Business Coalition (UBC) and has long been an active participant in UBC activities and efforts.  The group consists of like-minded businesses and business trade associations who share similar goals and ideals of fair government, sound legislative policy and streamlined regulation.  The UBC meets weekly during the legislative session and occasionally throughout the rest of the year to discuss issues, share information and work towards the aims of the broader business community in the State.

Key State Agencies Discuss Budgets

The legislative Natural Resources, Agriculture and Environmental Quality Appropriations Subcommittee met October 18 to review budgets and operations of several state agencies that are important to UPA Members.  In the 2017 interim, legislators have placed renewed emphasis on the subcommittees to thoroughly review each agency, their mission, and how they are accomplishing their goals within the budgets the legislature sets.  

Clean Air Caucus Focuses on Tier 3

The legislative Clean Air Caucus met the evening of October 17.  The Caucus is an ad hoc group of state legislators who have banded together to discuss and promote state policies and legislation to improve air quality.  Caucus leaders invited UPA Refining Members to attend and discuss their company's plans related to Tier 3 implementation in Utah.

Non-Compete Legislation Open House Scheduled

Some UPA Members may be interested in the ongoing issue surrounding non-compete legislation.  The following invitation to an October 24th informational open house has been circulated by the Salt Lake Chamber.

Natural Resources & Environmental Quality Appropriations Subcommittee

In an effort to place more emphasis on legislators' responsibilities as budget appropriators, a couple of the regularly scheduled legislative interim days have been replaced with full-day appropriations subcommittees.  That will be the case on Wednesday, October 18.

Transportation Task Force Receives Recommendations

UPA has closely watched the Transportation Governance and Funding Task Force and its subcommittees that have met throughout the summer.  The October 5 Task Force meeting included reports from each of the 3 subcommittees including the Funding Workgroup; Economic Development and Land Use Workgroup; and Governance and Transit Workgroup.  While each workgroup's interest focus has implications for UPA Members, we've principally followed the Funding Workgroup.
