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.

  • HB143: Driver License Suspension Amendments (2021)
    This bill prohibited the government from suspending the driver licenses of thousands of Utahns each year simply because they failed to pay a fine or appear in court.

    This bill passed the House 71-1 and passed the Senate unanimously. Libertas supports a "yea" vote.
  • HB217: Regulatory Sandbox Program Amendments (2021)
    This bill created the country's first all-inclusive regulatory sandbox which shields innovative companies from outdated or conflicting laws and regulations, allowing them to go to market without being punished for violating a law that did not envision future economic changes and innovations.

    This bill passed the entire Legislature unanimously. Libertas supports a "yea" vote.
  • HB76: Firearm Preemption Amendments (2021)
    This bill would have positioned the state of Utah as the protector of self-defense rights, undermining conflicting local laws as well as future federal laws dealing with gun control.

    This bill passed the House 56-16 but did not receive a Senate vote. Libertas supports a "yea" vote.
  • HB146: Driver License Suspension Amendments (2020)
    This bill would have prohibited the government from suspending a person's driver license for failure to pay court debt, and failure to appear in many non-driving related offenses.

    This bill passed the House 40-32 but did not receive a Senate vote. Libertas supports a "yea" vote.
  • HB114: Self-defense Amendments (2019)
    This bill protects a person's right to defend themselves using force even if safety could be achieved by retreating.

    This bill passed the House 54-16 and passed the Senate 18-8. Libertas supports a "yea" vote.
  • HB144: Driver License Suspension Amendments (2018)
    Before this bill, roughly 8,000 Utahns had their driver licenses suspended each year for drug offenses that had nothing to do with operating a vehicle. This bill eliminated that option, ensuring that driver licenses are only suspended in cases where the offense pertained to operating a vehicle.

    This bill passed the House 50-16 and passed the Senate unanimously. Libertas supports a "yea" vote.
