Senator Wayne Niederhauser was selected to be the new Utah Senate President by his fellow Republicans Thursday Nov. 8th.
Grateful for the opportunity to serve, Senator Niederhauser reflected: “It’s not about us, the Senate or the House. It’s about what is good for the people."
Other Republican offices were selected as follows: Senate majority whip: Sen. Stuart Adams, Assistant majority whip: Sen. Pete Knudson, Senate majority leader: Sen. Ralph Okerlund. Becky Lockhart has been the speaker of the Utah House since 2009 and was elected to continue and Rep. Brad Dee won the seat as House majority leader.
