Sponsored Ranked Bills

This legislator was the sponsor of the following bills, which were ranked by Libertas Institute in their respective year's Legislator Index.

  • HB55: Income Tax Credit for Purchase of Transit Pass (2014)
    This bill would have offered an income tax credit for those who purchase transit passes from the UTA.

    Libertas Institute opposed this bill. The UTA is already extremely subsidized by taxpayers. For example, individuals who ride UTA buses pay only 15% of the total cost through their fare, whereas those who ride FrontRunner pay only 5%. Offering further taxpayer subsidy is absolutely the wrong direction to go with respect to the UTA.

    This bill failed in the House 29-45. Libertas supports a "nay" vote.
