Both Redd and Sen. Shiozawa sat on the Social Services Appropriations and Standing Committee, so those will be considerable losses, requiring additional engagement with those committees to ensure they are familiar and supportive with our issues.
Cache County Council Member Greg Merrill has announced his intent to run for Redd’s legislative seat – we wish him the best on that.
Additionally this week, most discussions centered around the budget with the recent announcement of the governors budget recommendations for 2018-2019. You can read more about our analysis of it here.
Outside of those two issues it was a relatively slow week as it was the lead up week to the holiday break. Everyone please have a safe and happy holidays and Merry Christmas. Unless there is a major break in news, we’ll likely take next week off and see you at the beginning of January.
