HB304 Committee Hearing Tomorrow at 4pm!
HB304 will be heard tomorrow at 4pm in the House Revenue and Taxation Committee (room 445). Please come and show your support! We may send out additional information later tonight or tomorrow (for example, a possible gathering spot prior to the hearing to get organized etc) but we wanted to share this news with you right away!
Testifying in Committee
The committee hearing is open to public testimony, but we won't know in advance how much time is available for testimony, so we'd like to get as organized as possible in advance. If you're interested in testifying, draft 1-2 minutes of testimony for what you'd like to say and email it to us. We would like to cover:Air pollutionRural economic developmentTax policy and economicsUtah's leadership on small-government market-based environmental solutionsThe 2030 OlympicsClimate changeIdeally we would each cover different issues so we don't all say the same kinds of things. It's fine to mention climate change, but we don't want the focus only to be on that. There is more detail on each of these in Yoram's email from yesterday.
HB304 is now supported by the following organizations: Action Utah Alliance for a Better Utah Catholic Diocese of Salt Lake City Great Salt Lake Audubon HEAL Utah League of Women Voters Utah Clean Energy Utah Sierra Club Utah Citizens' Council(shown as 2018 HB403)
