Utah Governor Plans to Call Special Legislative Session to Address COVID-19 Concerns
Utah Gov. Gary Herbert announced March 31 he will call a special legislative session within two to three weeks to deal with growing COVID-19 concerns.
Gov. Herbert said several items will be at issue during the special session.
Items include extending the state’s personal income tax filing deadline from April 15 to July 15, and potentially opening the state’s General and Education funds.
It is unclear whether Gov. Herbert will ask lawmakers to take steps dealing with the spring and summer election deadlines.
This does not affect lobbyist reporting.
When the special session is called, all restrictions on contributions from individuals, lobbyists, principals, and political committees will apply.
