January - The Legislative Session

The 45-day state legislative session occurs each year starting in January. Hundreds of bills that have been worked on throughout the year are proposed, discussed, negotiated, and voted on at the state capitol. Your City Council and staff members, led by Government Affairs, work with residents and legislators all year long to make sure Herriman's voice is heard at the state level. During the session, we track dozens of bills that affect our priorities and work with the key decision makers.
