Utah News

When redistricting will happen in Utah and how you can get involved.
Salt Lake Tribune, Bryan Schott May 24, 2021 (Short)

There are 11 public meetings scheduled throughout the state in the fall.

You will have nearly a dozen chances to weigh in before lawmakers redraw the state’s political boundaries based on population data from the 2020 census.

How those lines are drawn will impact the lives of every person in the state. They determine who represents Utahns in Congress, in the Legislature, and on the State School Board.

Utah’s redistricting may even play a part in which party controls Congress. Utah’s 4th Congressional District has been a swing seat since it was first created in 2012, moving from Republicans to Democrats four times in five elections.

The Legislative Redistricting Committee recently announced it has scheduled 11 public meetings, from Logan to St. George and other towns in-between. The forums will start in September.

 

The Utah House and Senate passed separate resolutions Wednesday reiterating their commitment to the constitutional right to bear arms and expressing their desire to explore the possibility of declaring the state a “Second Amendment Sanctuary.”

The nonbinding resolutions, approved in an “extraordinary session” that was called by legislators in defiance of Gov. Spencer Cox’s wishes, are intended to make a statement of values and do not carry the force of law.

Senate Majority Leader Evan Vickers, who sponsored the Senate declaration, said he opted to run it amid “significant public outcry” and concern from constituents about federal gun policies.

Senate Majority Leader Evan Vickers, who sponsored the Senate declaration, said he opted to run it amid “significant public outcry” and concern from constituents about federal gun policies.

The Utah State Legislature is the state legislature of the U.S. state of Utah. It is a bicameral body, comprising the Utah House of Representatives, with 75 state representatives, and the Utah Senate, with 29 state senators. There are no term limits for either chamber.

The Legislature convenes at the Utah State Capitol in the state capital of Salt Lake City. In 2020, voters approved an amendment to the state constitution that changed the legislative start date from a constitutionally mandated fourth Monday of January to a date set by state law (thereby making it easier to change the start date if necessary). Current state law requires the start date of the Utah State Legislature to be the first Tuesday after the third Monday in January  for an annual 45-day session.
