The Utah Solutions Summit is an annual event hosted by Sen. Lee that brings together business and civic leaders to discuss public policy solutions designed to meet our nation’s most pressing challenges. Previous Solutions Summits have focused on the “Utah Model” of government and civil-society partnerships as well as reforming the federal regulatory state so that it works for, not against, hardworking Americans and their businesses. 

This year the Utah Solutions Summit will focus on how “disruptive innovation” – in government, educational institutions, and the business world – is the key to fostering the collaborative partnerships we need to create a healthy and productive workforce prepared for success.
