In an August 2021 report published by the Kem C. Gardner Policy Institute at the University of Utah it was reported that Utah’s defense industry contributes over an estimated 19 billion dollars of economic activity in the State (i.e., approximately 10.6% of Utah’s total GDP, and 10.3% of the total full and part time jobs within the State!)

Similarly, a state fact sheet produced by the United States Department of Defense reminds us that:

  • Utah is home to Hill Air Force Base (i.e., the Air Force’s second largest base, with an economic impact of more than 3 billion dollars annually with 21,000 personnel.)
  • Camp Williams consists of over 23,000 acres of high quality training environments for guard, reserve, and active duty soldiers, and is home to one of the largest data centers/repositories which plays a significant role in the monitoring of cyber-security threats.  

With military uses contributing such a significant amount to Utah’s local economy, it’s no surprise that new legislation was added during the 2024 General Session to ensure their continued operations.  

Special Note: The Office of the Property Rights Ombudsman has provided funding for this training program from the 1% surcharge on all building permits in the State of Utah.
