January 28th, 2015
It was a cold and dreamy day on the hill today. But it’s okay! The cold never bothered us anyway.
Today on the Hill, we held floor time, and had several large school groups came to visit. Shout out to students from the American Prep Academy, Southland Elementary, and Bountiful City Youth Council.
We also held our daily media briefing in the President’s office. Join us daily right after morning floor time via YouTube Live. Feel free to text in questions to 801-505-1457 and we’ll ask them on air.
During floor time we covered 6 new bills today with a grand total of 24 bills discussed in the quick 50 minutes of floor time.
Links we Like
– Today on the floor, Senator Stephenson recognized that we are celebrating School Choice Week.
– The conversation also continued to buzz today about the LDS Church and their statement on non-discrimination and religious freedoms. The LDS apostles who spoke yesterday in the press conference will be speaking with the Salt Lake Tribune tomorrow at 1:15pm.
– If you don’t have plans tonight, Governor Gary Herbert will be addressing us in the State of the State at 6:30pm MT.
– Think you’re playing the game of who’s “screaming louder”? Fear no more. This awesome post gives some great tips about the 2015 Legislative Session and also ways to effectively communicate with your legislatures.
– And lastly, just to keep you up to date on Senator Orrin Hatch, who’s representing us out in DC, read here about his thoughts on the national moments. Do you think it’s important where our national monuments are located? We’d love to hear your thoughts in the comment box.
