Utah Legislative Series: 2017 Wrap Up

The 45-day legislative race to pass new laws and craft a $16 billion budget will come to an end on March 9th. Once the dust has settled and we know which bills the Governor has signed or vetoed, join members of the Holland & Hart Government Affairs team for an in-depth analysis of what it all means for your business.

Need to know what new tax statutes might affect your business decisions? Tax Attorney Steve Young will walk you through the particulars and save you the time and calculator worries.

Amanda Smith, a veteran of the legislative process, will share her perspective and insights on the significance of changes to environmental legislation.

And finally, our Director of Government Affairs, Kate Bradshaw, will bring you up to speed on bills that will impact your business operations.

Join us for an hour long discussion to learn how the 45 days of the 2017 Legislative Session will impact your business going forward.
