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.

  • HJR11: Joint Rules Resolution on Base Budgeting Provisions (2018)
    This bill would have required legislative committees to begin utilizing zero-based budgeting for a portion of their budget each year, to provide closer scrutiny of each use of taxpayer resources.

    This bill passed the House unanimously but failed in the Senate 12-12. Libertas supports a "yea" vote.
  • HB196: Breastfeeding Protection Act (2018)
    This bill violates property rights by forcing business owners to accommodate nursing mothers on their property. While this natural and important act should be encouraged, it is not the role of government to compel property owners to permit its conduct on their premises.

    This bill passed the House 66-5 and passed the Senate 22-2.
