SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (News4Utah) – Like other groups, local municipalities can be found on Utah’s Capitol Hill to lobby for their best interests.
Executive Director of the Utah League of Cities and Towns Cameron Diehl stops by Inside Utah Politics to discuss his organizations legislative priorities during this year’s session.
One of the organizations top priorities is the opposition of House Bill 175.
“Our concern is this is state overreach, this would have a chilling effect on the ability of mayors and council members to deliberate and act in the best interest of their constituents. They would be constantly looking over their shoulder wondering if the oversight committee is going to step in and make a recommendation based on the effectiveness of a particular ordinance. So, we think this is micromanagement at the worst possible level,” Diehl said.
He also speaks on the groups support of the UTA Governance Bill and the homeless issue.
