Legislative Website[edit]

Utah Senate staff, under direction of Senate Presidents Waddoups and Niederhauser worked with the House of Representatives, the LFA, and other staff to develop what many have called the best legislative website in the nation. In 2014, le.utah.gov won the NCSL Online Democracy Award.[33] The Utah Legislature had previously won this award in 2005.[34]
