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.

  • HB20: Emergency Vehicle Operator Duty of Care Revisions (2014)
    This bill provided immunity for operators of emergency vehicles (such as police cars and ambulances) when pursuing a suspect of any crime. Immunity is granted under the bill even when the operator of the vehicle violates their department's pursuit policy.

    Libertas Institute opposed this bill. Government agents should not be given immunity from lawsuits if and when they act outside of their training and governing policies; victims should still be able in these cases to seek redress in court.

    This bill passed the Senate 15-13 and passed the House in concurrence 41-28. Libertas supports a "nay" vote.
