Utah House of Representatives

The Utah House of Representatives is the lower house of the Utah State Legislature, the state legislature of the U.S. state of Utah. The House is composed of 75 representatives elected from single member constituent districts. Each district contains an average population of 35,000 people. Members of the House are elected to two-year terms without term limits. The House convenes at the Utah State Capitol in Salt Lake City.[1]

In 2015 the chamber went against the stated position of the LDS Church, The Utah Chamber of Commerce, The Utah Hospital Association, The Utah Catholic Bishop, and others to oppose Republican Governor Gary Herbert's Healthy Utah plan which was passed by the Utah State Senate. The house speaker refused to even allow a vote on the legislation.[2]
