Yesterday marked the end of Utah’s fast-paced 2023 General Legislative Session. As a state senator, I had the opportunity to run several bills, including legislation to prevent environmental, social, and corporate governance (ESG) from being implemented in Utah.

ESG is an investment framework used by some organizations to prioritize environmental and social causes over returns, often resulting in lower performance, as outlined by the Harvard Business Review and Vanguard CEO Tim Buckley. Last week in an op-ed about my bill S.B. 97 Public Contract Requirements, which addresses a component of ESG, Patrick Belmont asserted that it was “anti-business, anti-environment, anti-freedom, anti-traditional Utah values, and anti-youth.”
