Revenue Restructure Task Force
Launches Website, Seeking Public Input 

SALT LAKE CITY – The Utah Legislature Tax Restructuring and Equalization Task Force launches its website – StrongerFutures.utah.gov – to hear directly from Utahns. Public input is a critical part of the process as the task force considers how to restructure the state’s funding imbalance.

The website equips the task force to expand their reach to hear directly from more citizens who can provide insight on how to improve and address our outdated tax structure. Engaged citizen’s feedback is valuable to the process and will provide the Legislature with informed recommendations for consideration.

There are numerous ways to be actively involved in the process and to share your thoughts.

  • Provide input by filling out an online comment form on the website 
  • Submit a comment at a town hall meeting
  • Sign up to speak* at a town hall meeting during public feedback. *Space is limited based on time and is on a first-come basis
  • Attend a town hall meeting to learn more, provide input and talk with task force members

See facts about challenges the Utah budget is facing, the schedule of public meetings, submit feedback and suggestions and get updates at StrongerFutures.utah.gov.

The town hall meetings are part of a statewide listening tour being conducted by the task force. The meetings begin with an open house where attendees can learn about the issue, the task force process and ask questions. Following the open house, the task force will provide a presentation on the challenges the state budget is facing and the public will have the opportunity to provide input. The town hall meeting will be live* streamed on le.utah.gov. *If there are technical issues with the live stream, the recording will be posted on the legislative website at a later time.
