Representative Joel Ferry: Checking In At The Legislature: 2020 Session Week 1

Representative Joel Ferry

The 2020 Legislative Session is underway! I want to keep those of you in my district informed about what is happening during the Legislative Session. To that end, I will be sending you weekly updates on what I am working on and important issues that may affect our district. We are halfway through week two. I will be sending you another update on Friday for what has happened this week. But, in the meantime, take a look at what happened in week one.

If you have any questions or concerns during this session, I hope you will reach out to me. Thank you for allowing me to serve our great state.

Thank you,
Representative Joel Ferry
House District 1


Tax Reform Repeal

The public has made their voice clear through the referendum on the state tax restructuring (SB2001). In response to this referendum, last Tuesday, the House voted nearly unanimously in support of H.B. 185 Tax Restructuring Revisions – Repeal. I believe that we are all Utahns committed to getting tax reform policy right, and we will continue to work together toward a solution to address the imbalance of our current tax structure.
