In less than a month the Utah legislature will be back in session and one local state representative, Val Potter, says he is busy now working on bills and otherwise getting prepared.
Potter, R-District 3, says he hopes the public will get involved this year by letting the legislators know what their priorities are. He said there will be a chance to start on that Saturday, January 20th.
“The four legislators – that’s Senator (Lyle) Hillyard, Representative (Curt) Webb, Representative (Ed) Redd and myself – are having a public town hall meeting at 7:30 (a.m.) at the multi-purpose room at the (Historic Cache County Courthouse),” Potter explains, “to talk about our legislation, to talk about the upcoming session, issues, things we know about, talk about the budget and listen to any input from the public.”
Potter says after that there will be a meeting at the same time and place each Saturday while the legislature is in session. He says there was a good turnout last year and he hopes even more people will come this year.
