Utah Lawmaker

January’s Utah legislative session will be the last for one northern Utah lawmaker. Republican Representative Ed Redd of Logan has announced he will not be seeking a fourth term.

Redd began serving in the Utah House of Representatives in 2013 and represents the fourth district. He is a member of the Health Reform Task Force and of the House Health and Human Services Committee. His assignments as a lawmaker also include serving on the Law Enforcement and Criminal Justice Interim Committee.
