Your child is thankful for you.
You are his voice.
You are her advocate.
You are his number one fan!
You are the reason that your child will go on to provide beautiful gifts to the rest of the world.

Utah state legislative committees meet at times other than during the regular session in January, February and March. There are interim committees, commissions and task forces that meet. Standing committees can also hold meetings at times when the legislature is not in session. The Social Services Appropriations Committee is scheduled to meet July 9 and September 26 , the Executive Appropriations Committee is not an interim committee, however, they are scheduled to meet every month from May to December except August. Learning about what happens during the “Interim ” is an important part of legislative advocacy. The best time to establish or continue to build on your relationship with your legislators is during the interim. Interim committees receive a great deal of information that is also important for advocates to know. What is covered during the interim can be a “heads up” as to what might be important during the next session.
Below is a list of interim committee’s that meet in May, June, July, September, October and November. Meetings are scheduled for 2 days each month. The schedule can be accessed on the legislative website, le.utah.gov. Meetings that are held at the state capitol are recorded and archived so they can be listened to online at any time. Some committees use interim meetings to make “on site visits” around the state. Notice of meetings, agendas and minutes are sent out for interim meetings. You can sign up to receive these notices by e-mail on the legislative website.
The interim committee membership and leadership are generally not the same as standing committee (committees that meet during the session) membership and leadership. It is important to know what interim committee assignments your senator and representative have been given. Constituents can give their representatives important information and even give suggestions of places that the interim committee may want to visit.
