House of Representatives (view the Senate)

Legislator HB101Tax Credits for Employing a Homeless Person

This bill would have given corporate and individual income tax credits to employers who hired homeless people. While Libertas is fully supportive of employers who assist homeless people and provide economic opportunities to those in need, we reject the idea that government should use taxes as a method of social engineering, even if the stated goals are praiseworthy.

This bill passed the House 42-28 and died in the Senate. Libertas supports a "nay" vote.
HB125Access to Dental Health Care

This bill establishes a dental health care delivery system and payment pilot program for dental benefits within Medicaid. It gives financial incentives to dentists who take in Medicaid patients, hoping to entice more of them to offer their services to those using Medicaid. Government money, obtained through taxation, should not be used to subsidize medical services and alter the doctor/patient relationship through financial incentives and other kickbacks.

This bill passed the House 68-2, passed the Senate 23-4, and was signed into law by Governor Herbert. Libertas supports a "nay" vote.
HB140Vehicle Checkpoint Amendments (DUI Checkpoint Ban)

This bill would have, with limited exceptions, repealed the authority to conduct DUI checkpoints. Libertas supported this bill because both the United States and Utah Constitutions guarantee "the right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizure." Checkpoints violate that protection, and thus are illegitimate uses of the police power.

This bill passed the House 41-33 and died in the Senate. Libertas supports a "yea" vote.
HB148Transfer of Public Lands Act and Related Study

This bill, signed into law by Governor Herbert, requires that the federal government turn over most of the public lands within Utah to the state's control. The federal government currently manages over 2/3 of the land within Utah, a number that is highly disproportionate to other states. No such constitutional authority exists for these land management policies, and therefore the federal government must relinquish control.

This bill passed the House 59-14, passed the Senate 21-6, and was signed into law by Governor Herbert. Libertas supports a "yea" vote.
HB194Involuntary Feeding and Hydration of Inmates

This bill creates a process to allow the government to forcibly feed or hydrate a prisoner who is attempting to starve himself to death. The government has no legitimate authority to compel a person to stay alive if he instead wishes to die.

This bill passed the House 63-10, passed the Senate 27-1, and was signed into law by Governor Herbert. Libertas supports a "nay" vote.
HB198Growing of Food

This bill, signed into law by Governor Herbert, rejects federal jurisdiction regarding food grown and consumed by an individual and his/her family. The federal government's long-standing abuse of the commerce clause must be challenged, as that clause was never meant by the founders to empower the federal government to micro-manage the most minute of commercially-related actions.

This bill passed the House 53-16, passed the Senate 21-6, and was signed into law by Governor Herbert. Libertas supports a "yea" vote.
HB254Controlled Substances Amendments

This bill adds new drugs to the list of "controlled substances," a lengthy list of drugs and chemicals that the state government prohibits. Individuals should certainly be encouraged to stay away from harmful drugs, but criminalizing the ingestion of a certain substance is not a legitimate power of government.

This bill passed the House 72-1, passed the Senate 24-2, and was signed into law by Governor Herbert. Libertas supports a "nay" vote.
HB272Pilot Program for Coverage for Autism Spectrum Disorders

This bill creates a pilot program in the state of Utah to provide health insurance and related services for children ages two to six who have autism. Estimated to cost $7.5 million in its first year alone, the bill offers up to $30,000 per year per child. While Libertas sympathizes with the cost of care for those who suffer from this developmental disorder, confiscating others' property through taxation to finance a new welfare system is not the proper role of government.

This bill passed the House 70-5, passed the Senate 19-8, and was signed into law by Governor Herbert.
HB290Divorce Orientation Class

This bill would have required that married couples with children take a "divorce orientation" class, paid for by the state, before filing for divorce. It also would have required a 90-day period between when somebody files for divorce and when it may be finalized. Libertas supports efforts to strengthen marriages and keep families intact, but disagrees that the government has a legitimate role in the process.

This bill died in the House on a 14-56 vote. Libertas supports a "nay" vote.
HB325Motor Fuel Marketing Act Reauthorization

This bill extends a law by five years that was due to sunset, which prohibits fuel companies from lowering gas prices below cost. Proponents of the bill claimed that large petroleum retailers were undercutting the competition and putting small gas stations out of business. Property owners (including gas companies) have the right to sell their goods at whatever price they please, for whatever reasons they wish. Government has no legitimate authority in interfering with lawful commerce between two parties.

This bill passed the House 41-31 and died in the Senate. Libertas supports a "nay" vote.
HB424Museum Appropriation Amendments

This bill would have given $250,000 in taxpayer dollars to the Department of Community and Culture to create an education and economic development support program. Taking property from people (via taxes) to create and fund cultural and art-related activities is immoral and an illegitimate role of government.

This bill died in the House on a 36-27 vote. Libertas supports a "nay" vote.
HB461Abortion Waiting Period

This bill, signed into law by Governor Herbert, requires that those seeking an abortion wait 72 hours after a face-to-face consultation in which they are described the gestation of the fetus and provided with information about alternatives, including adoption. Elective abortion is infanticide —murder—and although the federal government has opened the door for legalized infanticide, Libertas supports the state of Utah pushing back against such policies to protect the life of the unborn.

This bill passed the House 59-11, passed the Senate 22-6, and was signed into law by Governor Herbert. Libertas supports a "yea" vote.
HB49Firearms Revisions (Challenging Disorderly Conduct Claims)

This bill would have prevented municipalities around the state from citing individuals with disorderly conduct charges for simply carrying a weapon openly in the public. Police departments often impose stricter gun controls than what state law allows for by harassing law-abiding citizens with such charges, when their peaceable conduct is in no way disorderly.

This bill passed the House 50-21, passed the Senate 22-4 on a preliminary vote, and then died in the Senate before the final vote. Libertas supports a "yea" vote.
HB87Billboard Revisions (Electronic Billboards in SLC)

This bill would have stripped cities and counties of their ability to prohibit billboard companies from replacing static signs with electronic ones, also making it more difficult for cities to use eminent domain to take property with billboards on them. Property rights should not be violated without just cause, and billboard companies have the right to put any form of sign on their property that they wish.

This bill passed the House 55-16 and then died in the Senate. Libertas supports a "yea" vote.
HJR4Joint Resolution on Breastfeeding

This resolution encourages employers to provide unpaid break time and appropriate space for employees who need to breastfeed or express their milk for their infant children. While Libertas is very supportive of breastfeeding and sensitive to the needs of working mothers, resolutions such as these often later turn into mandates when the encouragement fails to have the desired effect. Government's role is not to encourage property owners to use their property a certain way. Initiatives such as these should be left to the private sector exclusively.

This resolution passed the House 69-1, passed the Senate 24-0, and therefore became an official joint resolution.
SB208Healthcare compact

This bill was designed to replace Medicare and Medicaid with a block grant to the states, having Utah join an interstate compact to opt out of federal health care laws without forgoing billions of dollars in federal funding. Libertas supports efforts which challenge the federal government's unconstitutional usurpations of power, such as with health care, despite believing that a compact such as this is a flawed idea because it must be approved by Congress. Thus, the state legislature is opposing the theft of power by Congress and asking that same legislative body to surrender its power. Rights and powers should not be requested politely from the thief which stole and abuses them—they should be affirmed and defended boldly. Libertas supports this effort only to the extent that it will in the near future hopefully lead to stronger efforts to check the federal government's arrogation of undelegated authority.

This bill passed the Senate 21-8, passed the House 45-23, and was signed into law by Governor Herbert. Libertas supports a "nay" vote.
SCR11Concurrent Resolution on the National Defense Authorization Act

This resolution affirms the individual rights of all citizens under both the United States and Utah Constitutions, objects to the National Defense Authorization Act of 2012's apparent violation of those rights, and urges the federal government to either clarify or repeal conflicting provisions.

This resolution passed the Senate 26-0, passed the House 71-0, and was signed by Governor Herbert. Libertas supports a "yea" vote.

Note: Like any legislative index, this one is based on a limited sampling of an elected official's voting record. It is important to do your own in-depth research when determining whether or not to support a candidate for office and consider other factors, including unreported committee or subcommittee service and constituent interaction.
