Letter to the Editor: Rep. Phil Lyman


This is an exciting time in our newly formed House District 69. Our district covers nearly 30% of the State of Utah and we are experiencing several great successes, some of which have been years in the making.

For the ranchers in San Juan, Kane and Garfield counties, critical wells have been drilled using Grazing Improvement Grants that I worked to secure, providing water to cattle and wildlife in remote areas near the Bears Ears and Grand Staircase National Monuments.

For those on Monroe Mountain, we secured a $400,000 study grant that is changing the way federal agencies manage the forest using actual data rather than political dogma.

The Bears Ears Visitor Center, which promises to be a draw for guests from around the world, is closer to becoming a reality.

Our Rural Healthcare has received increased funding as has our film industry.

We have brought attention to ranchers using cutting-edge technology to achieve huge water savings and increased yields. Deseret News Story

Life-sustaining water service has been established and the lights are on in areas that have never before had such services.  KSL News Story

But, we are not sitting back and resting. We are moving full speed ahead to the 2023 Legislative Session!

My open bill files include the following:

– Clergy Bill: Clergy’s duty to report child abuse. Utah Policy News – Clergy Bill

– Contact Water Bill: Transparency and equal treatment to all customers.  This bill would extend the original water legislation of Rep. Noel, Rep. Coleman and Rep. Stratton to cover all customers.  KSL News Story – Water Bill

– HOA Bill: Protecting homeowners and the disabled. Lymanforutah.com/utah-hoa-initiative

– Lobbyist Bill: Stopping the revolving doors for lobbyists.

– SITLA Bill: Holding the State Institutional Lands Administration accountable.

– Election Review Bill: Providing for sensible third party tabulation review of election results.

I would like to hear your input on these subjects. You can email me at lymanforutah@gmail.com. Thank you for your great support and your help in ensuring our success.

I look forward to working together with you during this upcoming legislative session and I appreciate your vote over the next few weeks.
