Legislative Action

The 2018 Utah Legislature convenes on Monday, January 22, 2018, and is scheduled to end Thursday, March 8th, 2018. Our Legislative Committee meets on a near-daily basis during the session to evaluate legislation and help formulate policy positions. We compile a list of bills to track that directly or indirectly impact our work. We will keep you updated on all legislation affecting sexual violence during the 45-day session. We will be updating the status of bills regularly and keep this webpage as updated as possible. For real-time updates, follow us on Facebook and subscribe to our email newsletter. If you have an interest in a bill that is not on our tracking list and would like to bring it to our attention, please contact us. During the beginning of the session, many requested bills will be in "Boxcar" status, meaning the language is still being written and isn't public yet. As those laws are numbered and introduced, we will review and formulate positions on those bills and add them to our tracking list. 

We look forward to working with you as we work to enact legislation that will help us eliminate sexual violence in our community. If you have questions or concerns about a particular piece of legislation, please let us know. You can always reach us at 801-746-0404 or info@ucasa.org.
