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.

  • SB30: Aggravated Murder Amendments (2018)
    This bill adds to the list of persons who, if killed by another, can lead toward the death penalty for the person who caused the death. Capital punishment is an ineffective deterrent and can lead to the execution of innocent people, and should be opposed. Expanding this list establishes a "second class citizen" of sorts by elevating some people and professions over others.

    This bill passed the Senate 22-3 and passed the House 39-29. Libertas supports a "nay" vote.
