How the system works
On January 14, 2017, a group from the Green Party of Utah attended the “Pre-Legislative Bootcamp” hosted by Libertas Utah to gain insight into how to more effectively communicate with Utah's legislators and navigate the processes of law-making and advocacy. Find our notes from the event below.
UNDERSTANDING THE OFFICE OF LEGISLATIVE RESEARCH, THE FISCAL ANALYST OFFICE, STATE AUDITOR AND LEGISLATIVE CONSTITUENCY OUTREACH
Presented by Ric Cantrell (Utah Senate Chief of Staff)
Contact your House representatives directly and frequently with your thoughts on any upcoming or pending legislation. They have no staff so they will usually respond directly. Senate members are not as responsive.
Contact the “Senate Constituency Response” unit at 801-538-1035, and they will properly direct your concern.
Leslie McClain is the Senate Secretary and is helpful with concerns or questions regarding the Senate.
