Wearable Bill Watch Application Aids with Following Legislation

SALT LAKE CITY--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Utah.Gov today announced a new Apple Watch update to the Utah Bill Watch mobile app. The award-winning app helps concerned residents easily track bills and receive instant updates as bills move through the Utah Legislature.

"The addition of Apple Watch to Bill Watch is a tremendous opportunity to help people learn more about legislation," said David Fletcher, Utah Chief Technology Officer. "It makes it just so easy to follow legislation."

"We always want to stay ahead of new technology," said Fletcher. "Creating useful applications on new technology, like wearables, allows us to discover new ways to serve residents of Utah."
