Prosperity Utah’s mission is to provide market-based solutions to Utah’s growth challenges.
Our vision is for Utah to become one of the most prosperous societies in the world, surpassing economies such as Dubai, Hong Kong, and Singapore.
Utah should be the easiest state to live, work, and raise a family. Our regulatory structure makes life more difficult for Utah citizens to get by, increases the financial strain on families, and stifles job growth and innovation.
High congestion levels decrease public safety and increase infrastructure costs that lead to higher taxes. We hope to create a statewide working environment that uniquely fits Utah’s family centric culture, encourages dialogue about best transportation practices, and improves overall employee satisfaction.
Housing costs increase when the demand for housing exceeds the available supply of housing. Burdensome zoning and regulations are the largest impediments to increasing the supply of affordable housing in Utah. Prosperity Utah plans to dramatically reduce the burdensome regulations that cause the price of housing to increase.
Utah must implement policies that drive competition in the energy market in order to increase the amount of low cost energy that we produce. Utah has massive untapped potential in the energy space. Not only from clean, traditional sources, but from green alternatives.
Utah’s air quality impacts the health of our children and families. Improving Utah’s air quality must remain a priority for state leaders. While powerful efforts have been made there is still much to be done.
Utah should have the highest standard of education and the most sought after workforce. We must replace the classroom model of education with a self-driven, decentralized model of education.
Prosperity Utah’s Healthcare Policy Center advances policy change that decreases the cost and increases the quality of healthcare in the United States. Our goal is to ensure that every American can receive the lifesaving healthcare that they need.
In 2015 Utah passed the Justice Reinvestment Initiative to decrease Utah’s prison population and save taxpayers $542 million in corrections spending while reducing crime rates and making our streets safer.
