Sen. Bramble Announces His Retirement at the End of the Year

March 18, 2024

After 24 years of dedicated legislative service, Sen. Curt Bramble, Senate District 24, announced he will retire at the end of the year. 

“For 24 years, I’ve had the honor of representing Utahns and working together to solve the difficult challenges facing Utah,” said Sen. Bramble. “It is difficult to put into words what serving my friends, neighbors and community means to me. It’s been one of the greatest privileges of my life to be at the forefront of policies that helped Utah rank as the best-managed state, have the best economic outlook for 16 years in a row and maintain a AAA bond rating. However, there is a time and a season for all things, and after careful consideration, it is now time for me to retire at the end of my term.”

“Sen. Bramble is an icon and dedicated lawmaker,” said President J. Stuart Adams. “He never backs away from tackling challenging issues and works tirelessly to find solutions to complex issues. Sen. Bramble’s expertise has helped our state implement tax policies that have spurred economic success. Additionally, he chaired the largest committee the Legislature has ever had with fairness, grace and order. I appreciate and commend Sen. Bramble’s commitment and many years of service. The Senate and Legislature will feel his absence.”

“I am committed to finishing my term strong and representing my constituents throughout the interim,” said Sen. Bramble. “Serving as a state senator has been an extraordinary chapter of my life and one I will always be grateful for. I am confident that District 24’s constituents will be well represented in my absence.”

Sen. Bramble helped shape policy that leveled the playing field between brick-and-mortar businesses and online shopping, eliminated regulatory burdens on businesses, made it easier for more Utahns to pursue their dreams by reforming professional licensing and stood for life by defending the unborn. 

Sen. Bramble began his legislative service in 2001 and currently chairs the Administrative Rules Review and General Oversight Committee, the Senate Business and Labor Committee and the Senate Business and Labor Confirmation Committee. He will continue to fulfill his senator and chair duties until the end of his term on December 31, 2024.
