Economic development

Government's job is to enhance economic development and allow the free market to create prosperity, and certainly, Utah does a good job attracting business. Its laws are friendly toward startups and relocations, and the state often ranks high in surveys on places in which to do business.

However, economic development is an issue we would like to be at the forefront of discussions on all other issues we raise. Clean air, quality education, sound liquor laws and policies that reduce intergenerational poverty all contribute to a state that attracts high-paying jobs and higher living standards.
