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.

  • HB34: Tanning for Minors (2020)
    This bill would have prohibited minors from using a tanning device, even with a parent's permission.

    This bill passed the House 41-31 but did not receive a Senate vote. Libertas supports a "nay" vote.
  • HB197: Cannabis Cultivation Amendments (2018)
    This bill puts the state in charge of growing cannabis for research and extremely limited use for those on their death bed. It also requires the government to determine the price of the cannabis. Utah's Constitution requires a free market and monopolies, such as the one established by this bill, are inherently problematic.

    This bill passed the House 38-32 and passed the Senate 20-5. Libertas supports a "nay" vote.
