This bill reformed occupational licensing for massage therapists by creating new classifications for massage professionals known as "massage assistants" and "massage assistants in training" to further decrease regulations on the profession.
This bill passed the Senate unanimously and passed the House 59-8. Libertas supports a "yea" vote.
- SB16: Licensing Amendments (2022)
This bill created a review board for current and proposed occupational licensure laws to help ensure a data-driven process to reduce regulations on Utah workers.
This bill passed the Senate 25-1 and passed the House 67-8. Libertas supports a "yea" vote.
- SB180: Massage Therapy Practice Act Amendments (2022)
This bill lowered the occupational licensure burden for massage therapists who want to perform simple, light-touch massages as an entry into the industry.
This bill passed the Senate 25-2 and passed the House 56-15. Libertas supports a "yea" vote.
- SB87: Professional Licensing Amendments (2021)
This bill eliminated the need to obtain a costly occupational license for people who merely wish to wash, dry, and style hair.
This bill passed the Senate 21-8 and passed the House 50-22. Libertas supports a "yea" vote.
- SB32: Employee Status Amendments (2021)
This bill made clear that a person providing a remote service is not deemed an employee so long as the relationship between the person and the company is freelance in nature, to ensure companies are not obligated with government mandates for contractors as they are for actual employees.
This bill passed the Senate unanimously and passed the House 60-13. Libertas supports a "yea" vote.
- SB123: Small Business Job Creation Tax Credit Act (2020)
This bill proposed $30 million in tax credits to "invest" in businesses that have fewer than 300 employees and less than $10 million in annual income.
This bill passed the Senate unanimously but did not receive a House vote. Libertas supports a "nay" vote.
- SB110: Sales Tax Collection Amendments (2017)
This bill would have compelled out-of-state companies to collect and remit sales taxes on purchases made by Utahns, if and when the company sells more than $100,000 in product or services to Utahns. It would have created up to $94 million in new revenue for the government without a corresponding tax decrease to be revenue neutral. This bill passed the Senate 25-1 but failed to pass a House committee. Libertas supports a "nay" vote, because out-of-state companies should not be deputized into tax collectors for the state of Utah, and the government should not be given new revenue without a corresponding tax decrease.
