A few dozen among the UAC Membership attended this year’s NACo Legislative Conference this past week in Washington DC. Along with a grundle of policy steering and other committees, other topics ran the gamut from financial to workforce issues and health and human service to public lands issues (and everything in between).
Utah members finished off the week on Tuesday morning with a special meeting with nearly all of Utah’s federal delegates (Rep. Jason Chaffetz, Sen. Orin Hatch, Rep. Chris Stewart, Sen. Mike Lee, and Rep. Rob Bishop). Each of the delegates provided status updates and commentary on a variety of issues, including PILT/SRS, Bears Ears, presidential appointments, and other issues affecting Utah. They also fielded a variety of questions.
