Executive Appropriations Committee

The Executive Appropriations Committee met and heard reports on grants the state is receiving and a report from the Medicaid Inspector General. This office is new to Utah and the goal is to create proactive communication with medical providers that will diminish excessive expenditures, fraud and eliminate excessive medical practices that end up costing the state money. There were also reports from the Utah State Office of Education on the implementation of on-line testing and from the fiscal analysts office on how student growth will be calculated in the future.

The newsletter is sent out weekly during the legislative session in January through March and monthly during the balance of the year. Occasionally, I will send you alerts when there is important or urgent information. Your email will be kept safe by my email service, Constant Contact, and I don’t share it with anyone.
