Legislative Affairs

As a CONVENER, ChamberWest brings Business, City, and Legislative Leaders to the same table in our Legislative Affairs Committee.  This committee is a powerful force within the State of Utah that ADVOCATES on behalf of our BUSINESS COMMUNITY.  Our Legislative Affairs Committee is comprised of subcommittees, each of them holding a piece of our puzzle. 

Magic happens in our Legislative Affairs Committee as we work on advocacy for our business community! This committee meets monthly April – December to “deep dive” into issues important to our business community. Nine sub-committees identify and create Priorities Documents around important issues such as (click below to view each one):

During January – March legislative session, the committee reviews bills to identify those impacting business in our communities and then work to advocate for our members based on those positions. The committee meets with legislators weekly to expand relationships, offer professional opinions from industry, share positions on specific legislation, and provide a forum for legislators to communicate to business and civic leaders of bills in process.  You can view a schedule of upcoming meetings at the bottom of this page.  Scroll down to see what's gearing up for the 2022 Legislative Session.

In addition to the Legislative Affairs Committee, ChamberWest also participates with other Chambers/Cities on the western side of the Salt Lake Valley as part of the Western Growth Coalition.

You can review the 2022 Bill Tracker and the results this session:

Each year, our State Legislators work hard to identify sound legislation and proposed bills that they feel need to be created or amended.  During this process, our ChamberWest Legislative Affairs Committee used our Bill Tracker to keep track of proposed bills that could affect businesses and the impact they may have.  You can see which bills have been Opposed or Supported by the business community in ChamberWest. If you're interested in joining our Legislative Affairs Committee, cost information and instructions are further down below.

There is an additional cost of $275 per year to participate on this Committee.
