State of Utah Archives: on Jobs


Gary Herbert: Remove oppressive nonsensical regulation & spur job creation

While I am optimistic about Utah's future, I realize that 71,000 Utahns still seek employment. And I will continue to work tirelessly with you in the legislature to empower the private sector to create job opportunities for every Utahn.

Sometimes promoting economic development means removing or simplifying overly oppressive or nonsensical regulation that also presents obstacles to job creation. Last year I told you about the results of our state regulatory reform effort. This year I am pleased to announce that I am partnering with the mayors of Provo, Ogden, Cedar City, and South Jordan on a pilot project to engage in regulatory reform at the local level that I hope could be a model for every city and county. These efforts exemplify the best kind of economic recovery, with government removing the obstacles to innovation and free market growth, creating real opportunity for all Utahns.
