If you have ever wanted to learn more about the political process, meet your legislators or tour the Utah State Capitol, register now for Democracy Day 2013, which will be held at the State Capitol Complex on Wednesday, January 30. This year we'll have a discussion between Utah Republican Party Chair Thomas Wright and Utah Democratic Party Chair Jim Dabakis debating a new host of issues post-election. Professor Chris Karpowitz from the BYU Center for the Study of Elections and Democracy, the keynote speaker, will discuss the political landscape and changes ahead with our newly elected political leaders.
A new year means a new session for the Utah State Legislature, which convenes on January 28 and wraps up a short 45 days later on March 14. Despite such an abbreviated session, over 400 bills will be passed, with hundreds more considered by legislative committees but not enacted into law.
