SALT LAKE CITY — Utah state Sen. Curt Bramble recently was elected vice president of the National Conference of State Legislatures, a bipartisan organization that serves the nation’s 7,383 state lawmakers and legislative staff.
He took office Thursday at the group’s Legislative Summit in Atlanta.
Bramble, R-Provo, will serve one year as vice president, move to president-elect the following year, and then become president at the conference's Legislative Summit in 2015.
“From an urgent policy-making perspective, I don’t know of a more critical moment in our nation’s history since the American Revolution,” Bramble said. “We face challenges, but we also have the experience and ability to arrive at solutions — and the best solutions are to be found among the geniuses and patriots of America’s laboratories of democracy, the states.”
Senator Bramble’s National Conference of State Legislatures work includes service on the Executive Committee, the Committee on Committees, the Immigration Task Force, and the State and Local Tax Task Force.
The group provides research, technical assistance and opportunities for policymakers to exchange ideas on state issues.
