July Newsletter

Summer is officially here. I just want to remind everyone of the importance of conserving water. We didn't get the snowpack needed to fully restock our reservoirs and it is vital that we do our best to keep what we have. That being said, I hope everyone is out enjoying the nice weather and spending time with family and friends. 


My Legislation 

In each email, I like to discuss some of the legislation that I have passed or I'm working on. The newest bill that I have opened brings attention to homeowners who have owned their homes for a substantial amount of time. 

Property Tax Amendments is exploring the opportunities of grandfathering homeowners who have lived in their homes for a significant period of time.

At the request of several constituents, who bought their homes for significantly less than what they are now being appraised for. With these amendments, they would pay tax on the purchase price and not the appraised value.

This would primarily impact and benefit homeowners who live on a fixed income and could be on the verge of losing their homes because of the property taxes, even though they own their homes. Luckily other states are already starting to implement something similar and I look forward to Utah taking the initiative to help our residents retain what they have worked so hard for. 


12NCEE Reimaging Risk and Resilience

This year I was honored to be a part of the round table discussion at The 12th National Conference on Earthquake Engineering, hosted by the Earthquake Engineering Research Institute (EERI.) This conference happens every 4 years in conjunction with federal and local partners. During this, we discussed ways to better protect our communities from the devastation of seismic activity. Utah alone currently has 140k unreinforced masonry (URM) buildings statewide and unreinforced masonry is the number one cause of death in earthquakes. These are preventable and we absolutely need to be prepared when the next earthquake happens. I'm grateful for the opportunity to learn and share information with other leaders in this field and look forward to continuing my work on legislation to help keep people safe in Utah. 

Magna's Night Out Against Crime

Magna's Night Out is a free and fun event for everyone to attend. The purpose of this event is to get involved with our local police department and build relationships with our neighbors and community members to help keep ourselves and each other safe. This event has been happening for years and I'm so glad that we are able to do it again. I hope to see you all there!

Magna Independence Day Parade

Thank you to everyone who showed up to walk with me in the parade. It's always so fun to see everyone and get out in the community. This is my favorite parade of the whole year and it was great to see so many new and familiar faces. I would also like to say thank you to the organizers who put this together each year. This wouldn't be possible without you.
