“It is an honor and privilege to be selected by our colleagues to the Senate majority leadership team once again. We are grateful for the opportunity to work with legislators in the Senate and the House, as well as the governor, to find solutions to issues that will strengthen our state and help Utahns reach greater personal and economic success. To remain the best economy in the nation, we need to find lasting solutions to Utah’s water crisis, make long-term investments in infrastructure and help individuals and families afford the rising cost of living.
“As a state and nation, we have faced immense challenges over the last few years. We counseled with experts, meticulously reviewed data, heard from the public and deliberated steps to reach the greatest outcomes for all Utahns. As a result, Utah has the best economy in the nation, is the fastest-growing state, ranked first in COVID-19 protocols, and holds the title of Best Economic Outlook for 15 years running.
Additionally, we were able to allocate historic funding for education and social services while cutting taxes for hard-working Utahns.
“Utah’s strong economy is a product of smart, innovative, conservative policies. We will continue to work towards improving the lives of all Utahns while preparing for future challenges. Our commitment to excellent policy drives decisions and will keep Utah moving in a positive upward trajectory. We will continue to meet challenges head-on during the upcoming session and work to find lasting solutions to ensure our state’s growth for generations to come.”
