Mail Policy

Because of the volume of mail that arrives at my office - sometimes exceeding 1,000 letters a day - I decided to dedicate my resources to answering mail from Utahns. Those who are not residents of my state may still write, but I regret that they will not receive a personal response.

In addition, please be aware that to protect mail handlers from anthrax, all congressional mail is being diverted to either Ohio or New Jersey for anthrax screening. This new mail procedure has caused significant delays, with some letters taking months to arrive at our office.

I appreciate your understanding and want to assure you that I am doing all I can to respond quickly to your letters once they are received. In the interim, I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

Please note: You do NOT need to send money to cover return postage.
