HOW TO SUPPORT LAUREN’S LAW

Lauren’s Law was heard in both the House Law Enforcement and Criminal Justice Committee and the House Judiciary Committee during the 2019 session. While it was ultimately tabled for further discussion, we are working diligently with legislators across the aisle to create a bill that will pass in future sessions. I am planning to reintroduce Lauren’s Law in 2020, and while committee assignments will likely be different, contacting your legislators still makes a huge impact on their potential support of the bill.

HOW TO CONTACT COMMITTEE MEMBERS

  • Find out who represents you at https://le.utah.gov/GIS/findDistrict.jsp. Lawmakers are much more likely to listen to constituents!

  • Please be brief, respectful, and clear!

  • Include where you live, so they can determine if you are a constituent.

  • Explain your personal reasons for supporting the bill, and why you feel it is good policy that deserves a debate on the floor of the House.

  • Remember that legislators are just people, and they do their best to make informed and positive decisions for the good of all of Utah. We work together better when we are understanding and kind to each other.

  • Don’t see your representatives on the committee? Email your reps anyway — your voice is important, and your representatives are there to listen. They will want to have your feedback when the time comes to vote on the bill.
