Lots of new faces, GOP leaders coming to 2019 Utah Legislature
SALT LAKE CITY — Starting at the top, the Utah House and Senate will see major turnover this year.
House Speaker Greg Hughes, R-Draper, and Senate President Wayne Niederhauser, R-Sandy, both will be gone not only from leadership positions but from the Legislature altogether. Neither is running for re-election.
In the House, 18 of 75 members, or 24 percent, won’t be returning in 2019. Some are not seeking re-election, some are running for other offices, including state Senate, and one is moving from Utah.
In the Senate, five of 29 senators, or 17 percent, are not running for another term.
