Gary Herbert on Government Reform

 


Ongoing review of election laws to upholding public trust

Let me take time to recognize the Lieutenant Governor's Office, as well as the Legislature, for their recent investigations of campaign and election law violations. We must continue to require ongoing review of our election laws to ensure strict compliance. Upholding the public trust in elected office starts with demonstrating our election laws must be adhered to--and when they are not, there will be serious consequences.

Commission to Optimize State Government: do more with less

We created the Advisory Commission to Optimize State Government. The goal of this group is to help the state do more with less in order to benefit all. It is headed by former Governor Norm Bangerter. This diverse and bipartisan group of civic and busines leaders is taking an inside-out look at all areas of the state. Their efforts will improve our already well-managed state, and, now more than ever, we must achieve new levels of efficiency in state government.

Guidelines on gifts, lobbying, & conflicts of interest

Today I signed an Executive Order that reaffirms and clarifies guidelines about accepting gifts, participating in lobbying efforts and identifying conflicts of interest. Now is as good a time as any to remind all state employees what constitutes acceptable and unacceptable conduct.

I encourage you, as lawmakers, to remove any perception of possible ethical issues by implementing meaningful and substantive ethics reform.
