We are proud that the majority of the Utah legislature is supportive of the humanities & arts sector, as our grades show. Our 501(c)4 arm -- Utah Cultural Advocacy Alliance -- was approved by the IRS in 2016 and since 2017 has tracked which elected officials voted “yes” on bills UCA deemed beneficial to the arts and humanities in our community.
As a result here are our House and Senate Report Cards that give letter grades to Utah’s elected officials based on how well their legislative votes are advancing the needs and interests of the cultural community.
Grading is based on two parts:
- the elected official’s membership status in the Utah Cultural Caucus and,
- whether or not elected officials voted yes on bills UCA deemed to be beneficial to Utah’s arts, humanities and culture sectors.
