Indigenous Peoples' Day as Replacement for Columbus Day

  • Jim Dabakis Utah Senator

Abstract

Each year towards the end of January as directed by the Utah Constitution, 29 senators and 75 representatives convene for the 45-day session of the Utah State Legislature. A relatively short session compared with most other states, the Utah Legislature is unique in its efficiency, accessibility and ideology. It is efficient in that the Legislature passes far more bills in 45 days than U.S. Congress o en passes in an entire session. e Utah Legislature, for example, passed 528 bills in 2015, while the 113th Congress passed just 297.
