Dear Friends:


Our annual General Session of the Utah Legislature begins on January 25th and concludes at midnight on March 10th.  During that time we review budgets, appropriations requests, and nearly one thousand pieces of legislation. You are welcome to join us at the Capitol to attend House and Senate committee meetings and observe floor debates.  All Democratic Caucus meetings are also open to the public.


There are a variety of helpful resources on our legislative website:  www.le.utah.gov. This is the best place to find information on bills, committee schedules, appropriations requests, budget reports, background on legislators, and much more.  You can live stream audio and video from the House and Senate floors or audio from committee meetings. There’s more than enough information to keep even the most wonkish nerd happy.  And for some additional perspectives on legislation, you can follow me on Facebook and Twitter.


This session, the main committees which I serve on are:  Legislative Management, Executive Appropriations, Ethics (Vice Chair), Government Operations, Public Utilities & Technology, and Business, Economic Development & Labor Appropriations. I also serve as a member of the House Democratic Leadership Team and am the Co-Chair and Founder of the Clean Air Caucus. A full list of my assignments can be found here.


The best way to reach me is by email. My email address is: parent@le.utah.gov.  You can also call my cell number, but it’s hard for me to pick up during hearings or debates. My number is 801-889-7849. You are also welcome to meet me at the Capitol. If possible, please contact me in advance so I will be available when you arrive.


During the legislative session, I will be assisted by my new Hinckley Intern, Kathryn Macdonald, a senior at the University of Utah. She will be assisting me with a variety of matters, including scheduling requests. You can reach Kathryn at: kmacdonald@le.utah.gov.


It is truly an honor to represent House District 36 in the Utah House of Representatives. Please feel free to contact me concerning any state legislative issues.


Best regards,

Representative Patrice Arent
