State of Utah Archives: on Families & Children


Gary Herbert: Population growth is challenging: doubling in 35 years

The first challenge we face is population growth. Utah is now the second-fastest growing state in the nation. We now number over 2.9 million people, and our population is projected to nearly double in the next 35 years. This population growth impacts everything we do.

Take education, for example. We have a fast-growing student population, which creates a major funding demand. It costs us nearly $70 million per year in additional money just to pay for our new students.

Dan Liljenquist: Restore the traditional family & states' rights

SELF-RELIANCE: We must stop looking to government to solve our problems. It's time we secure our borders and we must fix the welfare state that is destroying industry, innovation and most of all, the traditional family.

STATES' RIGHTS: Dan is a strong advocate for states' rights and will fight to push power back to states and individuals, where it belongs. He will fight to return the Senate to its rightful place as the bulwark against federal intrusion into the states.
