Bishop Prayer

Here is what we discussed in the Senate Business and Labor committee on Thursday:

HB0012 – Alarm Company Employee Licensing (Dunnigan). This bill modifies the definition of “alarm company agent” to exclude some alarm company employees from licensing requirements. It passed.

SB0041 – Uniform Commercial Code Amendments (Hillyard). This bill modifies the Uniform Commercial Code to address secured transactions. It passed after being amended in committee.

SB0044 – Construction Trades Licensing Revisions (Mayne). This bill modifies the Utah Construction Trades Licensing Act regarding unincorporated entities that are engaged in a construction trade. It effectively eliminates the practice of making every worker hired a member of the corporate LLC to avoid certain protection guarantees to employees. It passed unanimously.

SB0142 – Repeal of Blacklisting Provisions (Thatcher). This bill provides penalties for blacklisting a former employee.

SB0143 – Mortgage and Financial Affairs Amendments (Harper). This bill amends requirements for communications between lenders and mortgage holders.

Also, I visited with some students from the University of Utah who were showcasing their science projects in the rotunda.
