Subject: Mr. Peterson's Perspectives: May 2013 Update
Date: Thu May 29 21:37:48 MDT 2014
It's time for a political update.
I was priviledged to sit down this morning with a handful of my legislative colleagues and have breakfast with Senator Mike Lee. If was a very insightful and interesting conversation. We discussed political dynamics in the U.S. Senate, policy issues important to Utah, and got to know Senator Lee on a more personal basis.
I continue to do Legislative work despite the end of the General Session and the looming campaign season. The Courts invited me to participate in a work group starting in June to discuss a top to bottom review of the Commissioner system in the District Courts. State Senator Todd Weiler and I will be the legislative stakeholders sitting on that committee. It should be an interesting discussion. We will be forming policy recommendations for legislation to be presented for the next General Session.
Due to constituent feedback, I have also opened a bill file dealing with veteranary business regulations and clarifying confusing language in our current law.
