With the numerous tasks a local business owner must complete, keeping abreast of policy changes can be a challenge. That’s why the Vest Pocket Business Coalition is inviting Utah business owners to attend a panel presentation summarizing the 2014 legislative session, featuring speakers Frank Pignanelli, LaVarr Webb and Jeremy Keele.
“Many observers of the 2014 Utah Legislative session witnessed a battle of wills between key lawmakers and the Executive Branch. Some special interest groups were pleased with the results while others were disappointed,” said Pignanelli. “Join us at the 2014 Legislative Wrap-up for an insider’s look at the conflicts, compromises, and politics of the recent legislative session, and outcomes of importance to Utah’s entrepreneurs.”
Democrat Frank Pignanelli is a Salt Lake attorney, lobbyist and political adviser. Pignanelli served 10 years in the Utah House of Representatives, including six years as minority leader. Republican, LaVarr Webb, is a political consultant and lobbyist. Previously, he worked as policy deputy to Gov. Mike Leavitt and Deseret News managing editor. Jeremy Keele is the senior policy advisor to Mayor McAdams, Director of Government Relations for Salt Lake County and an adjunct professor at BYU Law School. Previously, he worked as a corporate attorney.
The Legislative Review will be held on Wednesday, April 23 at 7:30 a.m. at the Salt Lake Chamber, 175 East 400 South, 6th Floor. Cost for the event is $15 for the general public and $10 for Vest Pocket members. To register for the event, visit www.vestpocket.org.
