June 16, 2017

WASHINGTON DC – The American Conservative Union Foundation (ACUF) has just released its ratings for the 2017 meeting of the Utah State Legislature. These ratings, a portion of the comprehensive and nationwide ratings released by the ACUF, are designed to reflect how elected officials view the role of government and are helpful in illustrating how both chambers of the legislature as well as individual members’ prioritize a wide variety of issue areas that directly affect Utahans.

The ACUF has reviewed each piece of legislation voted on in both the Senate and House of Representatives to produce average scores for each chamber as well as individual scores for each sitting member.

Utah lawmakers took pen to paper on various issues during the 2017 legislative session including charter schools, motorcycle helmet regulations, welfare benefits, teacher pay flexibility, and even loosened up regulations on backyard barbeques. The 2017 Utah State Legislature saw both chambers working closely together, passing a good number of bills in both the House and the Senate. Most notably, the legislature voted to:

The two chambers not only worked together to pass a handful of beneficial legislation this year but boosted their overall conservative score, suggesting the legislative body has seen moderate improvement this year. The Utah Senate’s average score increased by 7% points this year – from 62% in 2016 to 69% in 2017 – and the House’s score also increased by 7% – from 57% in 2016 to 64% this year.
