Important Issues | Mike For Utah

HEALTHCARE

 

Utahns take care of Utahns, but our one-party government has not listened to the people. Instead, they have made health care a political issue, and their partisanship hurts families. I have built my career by finding solutions to complex health care issues and, as governor, I will work toward full Medicaid expansion, implement state employee health programs, and increase access to preventative care.

EDUCATION

 

Education is the key to a stronger economy and a bright future for our children, but we are dead last in K-12 per-pupil funding and it’s too hard for Utahns to receive a post-high school education. As governor, I will work to increase school funding for K-12 and higher education, better prepare our students for college and careers, and close the achievement gap.

MEDICAL CANNABIS

 

“I have seen my wife doubled over in pain. I have seen her unable to sleep, and in too much pain to get out of bed. But you know what? This is bigger than my wife, or my family. This is about the tens of thousands of Utah families who face that same awful decision every single day.”

AIR QUALITY

 

Utah has become infamous for our pollution, especially during inversion season when our cities have some of the worst air quality in the nation. The harm is real and affects nearly every Utahn. As governor, I will give the Division of Air Quality the tools it needs, work with industries to find mutually beneficial solutions, and find new ways to reduce personal and vehicular emissions.

PUBLIC LANDS

 

Governor Gary Herbert has said he wants to “privatize” public lands in Utah– check out our new video and see for yourself! This November 8th VOTE to protect our public lands! #UTnot4sale. I won’t let that happen. Learn what is my stance about protecting access to our public lands.
