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.

  • SB12: Age Limit for Tobacco and Related Products (2014)
    This bill would have prohibited the possession of tobacco, e-cigarettes, or paraphernalia by an individual less than 21 years of age. It also would have banned the sale of such items to those under 21, and prohibited those under 21 from being present at certain establishments where such items are sold or used.

    Libertas Institute opposed this bill. Legal adults—those 18 years of age and older—should not be prohibited by law from purchasing legal products. If 18 year olds can be sent to war, they should be legally able to smoke.

    This bill failed in the Senate 12-16. Libertas supports a "nay" vote.
