The Utah Governor’s Office of Economic Development (GOED), together with the Utah Science Technology and Research (USTAR) initiative, the World Trade Center Utah (WTC Utah), and the Utah Office of Energy Development (OED), who are now co-located at the World Trade Center Utah building, hosted their first Legislative Outreach Day.

The Legislative Outreach Day was the first opportunity for many of Utah’s legislators to tour the new facility. The tour included briefings from GOED, USTAR, WTC Utah and OED management, as well as overviews of GOED’s Corporate Incentives and Economic Clusters programs.

The Utah Broadband Project also gave a brief presentation and encouraged legislators to use the Utah Broadband Map to learn more about broadband service availability in their districts.

Twenty-seven legislators attended the event, including one newly-elected senator and seven newly-elected representatives. The event will be held annually and will be used to keep legislators informed on programs and resources available to them.
