As state lawmakers prepare for the 2014 Legislature starting in late January, they spent a day at the David Eccles School of Business in training and information sessions designed to help them address the state’s business with the most accurate economic and demographic information available.

The University of Utah and its business school proved a natural fit for the day-long retreat–the first time the annual Utah Legislative Policy Summit has taken place away from Capitol Hill. Conducted in partnership with the Office of Legislative Research and General Counsel, as well as the Legislative Fiscal Analyst’s Office, the strategic planning session offered lawmakers a bevy of information from David Eccles School of Business academics and their own legislative peers.
