The Utah State Legislature kicked off its 2019 Session on January 28th and things are heating up very quickly. It is currently anticipated that hundreds of bills will be filed this session for review. Some of the major issues so far include taxes, electronic data privacy and overall medicaid expansion. The UMCA is closely monitoring a handful of bills that may impact our members and will be actively involved in protecting the interests of our members this legislative session. In an effort to give you up-to-date information on bills the UMCA is tracking this session, the UMCA Website features a “Bill Tracker” that will be updated multiple times a week. The Bill Tracker features information about the different bills including summaries of the bills, the current status of the bills, and the UMCA’s Official Position on the bills. We encourage all of our members to review the Bill Tracker and to contact the UMCA Office with any questions you might have about this legislative session and how we might better serve you.
