2018 Utah Legislative Session

Dear FRIENDS,

FRIENDS of Great Salt Lake's mission is to protect Great Salt Lake ecosystems through education, research, advocacy, and the arts.

This year, the 2018 Utah Legislative Session is January 22 - March 8, 2018. During the 2018 Utah Legislative Session, FRIENDS of Great Salt Lake will be tracking issues and bills that are important to our mission. This year, we are expecting bills that relate to the proposed Bear River dam and the Promontory Point Landfill.

As the session begins, FRIENDS of Great Salt Lake will be sending important action alerts to our members and constituents. We invite you to participate in your local government by communicating with your state representatives to let them know you care about the issues that impact Great Salt Lake.

Participating in your local and state government has a big impact on our resources here in Utah. This local advocacy is even more important because our federal government has turned its back on the environment.

In advance of the session, find out who your Utah Representatives and Senators are here.

We look forward to participating alongside our members during the 2018 Utah Legislative Session.

Best,

FRIENDS of Great Salt Lake

Board of Directors and Staff

Why We Care

  • Save the dashing of the waves against the shore absolutely nothing is heard. Not the jumping of a fish, the chirp of an insect nor any of the least thing betokening life, unless it be that very rarely a solitary gull is disturbed in his midnight rumination and flies screaming away. All is stillness and solitude profound.
