Rep. Hall's September Legislative Summary!

Hope you had a fun and safe summer! Thanks again for your support and for contacting me regarding any issue you would like to discuss.  I hope these newsletters are a good resource for tracking the work of the legislature as it continues during this interim period.  

 
September Interim Session


Following the completion of the general legislative Session begins the off-season, or "Interim" Session.  Once a month we meet in committees comprised of both House and Senate members and begin to craft and discuss proposed legislation for the 2016 session.  Our latest Interim Session was on September 21, 2016. 


Items discussed during the September 2016 Interim Session included:



 
  • Discussed findings from the mastery-based education working group, including barriers to expanding mastery-based learning. 
  • Received policy recommendations on how to promote child development and reduce intergenerational poverty.  The recommendations included enacting a state earned income tax credit and Investing early in children's cognitive and noncognitive development.
  • Received presentations from a legislator, the Utah Department of Health, and a police chief regarding the naloxone rescue kit program that seeks to reduce opioid overdose deaths in Utah.
  • Discussed implementation of Tier 3 fuel and vehicle requirements and discussed potential electric vehicle tax incentives.
  • Discussed the need for a dedicated, statewide crisis line that would connect a caller with the appropriate crisis intervention resources in the caller's area. 
  • Received a presentation from the Office of the Legislative Auditor General outlining the findings and recommendations from the recently completedPerformance Audit of the Utah Department of Transportation.
  • Received a staff presentation focusing on the challenges faced by families of servicemembers who experience multiple deployments
  • Here's a more thorough summary of all items discussed during the July Interim and Special Session.

Other items
 
  • Vote Craig Hall!

It's hard to believe, but we are 37 days from Election Day. We have been reaching out to voters within District 33 through knocking on doors, being part of community events, meeting voters at events and on their front porch, putting up signs, etc.  It has truly been an honor representing the great folks of District 33.  I feel good about what we have accomplished over the last few years and look forward to representing my neighbors for another term at the State Capitol.  


 
  • Teachers Formally Endorse Rep. Hall

Nothing means more to my wife and I than making sure our kids, and our neighbors' children, receive the best quality education.  For that reason I have worked tirelessly as your Representative to listen to teachers, vote for bills that improve our schools, and do everything I can to help. Fortunately, teachers have taken notice.  

Accordingly, after evaluating the two candidates in this race, I have received the formal endorsement of the largest teacher association in the State.  Thank you for your hard work and your support!


 
  • Ride-along/DUI blitz with the Utah Highway Patrol

Went on a ride-along in early September for a DUI blitz with these amazing folks. This is a photo right before we went out.  Every time I do a ride-along, it is an amazing experience.  Thanks for the invite!  So grateful to all these troopers for their service and for helping to keep us safe.



 
  • Town Hall Meeting with the Utah Pacific Islander Civic Engagement Coalition

Last week I attended a Town Hall / Meet the Candidate event with the Utah Pacific Islander Civic Engagement Coalition (pre-event candidate photo below). Thanks for the invite!


 
  • Endorsement from West Valley Mayor Ron Bigelow!
Thanks for your endorsement Mayor Bigelow!

"Over the last several years, Rep. Hall has proven an invaluable partner as West Valley city officials interact with the state legislature. House District 33 has been well served with his capable leadership. Rep. Hall has provided strong representation for West Valley and I strongly endorse his re-election campaign as State Representative." - West Valley Mayor Ron Bigelow
