Speaker of the House Becky Lockhart has issued a call for a House session to consider a resolution setting up an investigative committee. The committee has been requested by both Republican and Democratic caucuses, and will investigate allegations against Utah’s Attorney General.
Below is the text of the e-mail she sent to House members, including two attachments: the formal call, and H.R. 9001.
Over the past week, I have been working with Legislative staff preparing for a House session to create an investigative committee. The proposed committee is the will of the people as expressed through their representatives.
Attached you will find:
• the call for a House rules session on July 3 beginning at 10 a.m.
• H.R. 9001. The resolution outlines details for a committee that will investigate allegations against Utah’s Attorney General. The resolution is sponsored by Rules Committee Chairman Dean Sanpei.
The House Rules Committee will hear the resolution in a public meeting on July 3 at 8 a.m.
I appreciate your willingness to fulfill your duties as an elected representative, especially during the holidays. We’ve taken on a task that will be neither pleasant nor easy. But there is no group of people I trust more to find the facts than the House of Representatives.
Speaker Becky Lockhart
