H.J.R. 26 Enrolled







Sponsor: Chad E. Bennion

                  This joint resolution of the Legislature urges Utah state agencies and the Utah business
                  community to work together to develop strategies that balance the need for regulatory
                  protections with the needs faced by the business community in its role in strengthening the
                  economy of the state.
                  Be it resolved by the Legislature of the state of Utah:
                      WHEREAS, Utah has a rich heritage in the development of numerous industries;
                      WHEREAS, individual citizens of Utah, demonstrating extraordinary entrepreneurial
                  acumen, contributed greatly to the state's economic legacy;
                      WHEREAS, the Utah business community has created hundreds of thousands of jobs for
                  Utah's citizens;
                      WHEREAS, Utah's strong economy, fueled in part by a strong and successful business
                  community, has greatly enhanced the standard of living and buying power of Utah's families;
                      WHEREAS, regulation of business, in many instances, plays a vital role in preserving
                  fairness and safety within the free enterprise system for the benefit of citizens and regulated
                      WHEREAS, determining what factors may restrict the business community's ability to
                  respond to economic challenges can strengthen Utah businesses and increase the economic stability
                  of the state;
                      WHEREAS, in providing these needed protections, the regulatory actions of state agencies
                  should provide needed protection to the public without impeding the efforts of businesses to
                  remain economically viable;
                      WHEREAS, regulatory and other state agencies can play an important role in helping
                  businesses to succeed economically within a regulatory structure;

                      WHEREAS, regulatory and other state agencies should work with Utah businesses to develop
                  regulations that demonstrate that protecting the public and helping businesses grow and expand are
                  mutually compatible goals; and
                      WHEREAS, regulations that serve this dual purpose should be pursued with vigor and
                  determination for the benefit of the state's citizens, businesses, and the state's economy:
                      NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the Legislature of the state of Utah urges the
                  state's regulatory agencies and the Utah business community to work together to develop regulatory
                  strategies that enhance the balance between the need for regulatory protections and the economic
                  needs and challenges faced by the business community.
                      BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that a copy of this resolution be sent to each department of
                  state government and to each of Utah's Chambers of Commerce.
