Utah First

Each year, I give an accounting of my work in Congress to the Utah Legislature and the People of Utah. My annual report can be viewed on my website or you can obtain a copy by visiting one of my offices in Utah or in Washington, D.C.

I met with some of the leadership and students at The Other Side Academy in Salt Lake. I was blown away by their stories, turning away from lives of crime and drug use toward lives of meaning and purpose. Their model is one that I believe could be emulated to the benefit of individuals across the nation.

The Other Side Academy does this with no government funding, giving them the freedom to run their program in the way they feel is most effective in the lives of their students.

I met with Utah Attorney General Sean Reyes and Utah DEA Special Agent in Charge Brian Besser to discuss efforts to combat the opioid crisis in Utah. Together we developed an action plan to address the root causes of this issue.

My staff is doing great work researching the numbers and causes behind the opioid crisis as part of the Social Capital Project. You can view their work here.

I recently had the opportunity to travel to central and southern Utah to meet with the people of Carbon, Emery, Grand, Juab, Sanpete, San Juan, Sevier, and Wayne counties. Like most who visit central and southern Utah, I am continually awed by the natural beauty found there. What a privilege it is for me to represent the people of this great state, and what a privilege it is to call Utah my home.

On Tuesday, July 26 at 7:45 p.m. MT, Senator Mike Lee will be hosting a statewide teleforum to discuss federal land policy. The Obama Administration is considering designating 1.9 million acres in San Juan County as the Bears Ears National Monument. Excessively large national monument designations like this are very controversial, because they ignore state and local government land management policy and silence the voices of local residents impacted by the monument by excluding their elected representatives in Congress from the designation process.
