Welcome to the General Session of the 60th Legislature.
The next 45 days promise to be full of policy, debates over poisonous gasses, and awesome tweets. Hope you’ll join us.
According to our OLRGC, as of yesterday, we had 207 numbered bills, 76 bills in proof/compare (final stage), and 84 bills out for approval.
We’re ready to jump in head-first, but first we want to get you up-to-date on the best ways to connect to us.
Here at the Senate we dig social media connections between us, our constituents, and the people all around us.
We have Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Google+, Instagram (@UtahSenate) and two cool blogs: Senate Site (you are here) and Utah Senate Democrats. We use Flickr, Picasa and YouTube. We’re LinkedIn. We’re on Foursquare, even though the interns have repeatedly and clearly informed senior staffers that Foursquare is dumb. We’re on Snapchat. Just kidding. Not yet. We do live stream every minute of Senate Floor debate, and our Daily Media Availability via UStream combines the inquisitiveness of local media with the acquisitiveness of our senators. [Small joke.]
