SALT LAKE CITY — Day one of Utah’s legislative session is here.
For the next 45 days, Utah’s capitol hill will be buzzing with lawmakers, lobbyists, and Utahns with a vested interest in the laws and money that shapes our state.
Those lawmakers will be spending millions of taxpayer dollars and passing hundreds of new or amended laws.
The session officially starts at 10 a.m. Tuesday with remarks from both Senate President Stuart Adams and House Speaker Brad Wilson in their respective chambers.
A flurry of legislation is already waiting in the cue to be heard in both houses. Floor time in both chambers is scheduled throughout the day.
Lawmakers typically pass or amend hundreds of laws by the end of the session in March.
