Second Week Down!

 
We just finished the second week of the General Session and everything is speeding up. During the first few weeks of the session, we spend a lot of time working in committees and figuring out budgets. This next week we will be finalizing the base budget for Utah. This budget sets the tone for the final budget and determines what programs will be financed and how much they will receive. Your input is important to me so please continue to reach out to let me know what is important to you.

Happening on the Hill

H.J.R. 7 Joint Resolution Honoring the Sikh Community highlights the contributions of the Sikh Community. The resolution expresses support for the wonderful community in our state has passed through committee this last week. It is set to go on to the house floor Feb. 10th. 

H.B. 18 Intimate Image Distribution Amendments passed through the Senate this week. This bill cleaned up a bill from last year dealing with the sharing of images edited to make them appear to be intimate photos of an individual so that minors who share photos of other minors are not punished the same as adults who share images of minors. 



In The Works

Being presented on Monday at 2 P.M.
H.B. 84 Child Support Limitations is in the works. This bill repeals the statute of limitations for child support orders. Currently, after a child becomes an adult, a person who is owed back child support, whether it be $100 or $10,000, only has four years to collect the back owed child support. This bill will extend that time by eight years for collection. 

Being presented on Tuesday at 10 A.M.
H.B. 100 Emergency Preparedness Amendments will create the Office of Earthquake Preparedness and Response which would help the people of Utah make sure that we are prepared by bringing resources together in one place. I'm very happy to have Sen. Hinkins as a Senate Sponsor on this bill and I'm looking forward to it passing. 

I have filed a request for appropriations of funding for the Utah Ethnic and Mining Museum of Magna. Magna has an amazing history. If you have ever been to this museum then you know that they put in so much effort to keep that history alive. They are located at 9056 W. Magna Main. Take some time this week to stop in and learn more about our wonderful history.
