Libertarian Party of Utah: We Hope the FSP Efforts Spread Throughout the U.S.
At its June 2003 State Central Committee meeting, the Libertarian Party of Utah endorsed the Free State Project:
"The Free State Project is a very libertarian endeavor and should encourage those seeking more individual liberty and personal responsibility through smaller government," says Fran Tully, State Chair of the Libertarian Party of Utah. "We wholeheartedly endorse the project."
In response to those who might interpret the endorsement as giving up on freedom in Utah, Tully says: "Nothing could be further from the truth. We will never give up on freedom in Utah. The success of the Free State Project can only benefit Utahns. If the Free State Project demonstrates that by shrinking the role of the state it can improve the quality of life for Free State residents, then other states will emulate its policies."
Adds Tully: "We commend Jason Sorens and his team for their work on this project and wish they and all Free State Project members and friends success. We hope that their efforts spread through the United States, and brings freedom and liberty back to the people."

And also, the State Central Committee of the Libertarian Party of Utah endorsed the following statement at its meeting on July 16, 2005:
"The Libertarian Party of Utah proudly affirms its support for the Free State Project, and congratulates its membership for having chosen New Hampshire as its destination state for this ambitious project. We also salute those LPUtah members participating in the Free State Project. The Free Staters' work to advance the cause of liberty, whether near or far, sustains our efforts to do the same in Utah."
