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.

  • HB128: Electronic Device Location Amendments (2014)
    This bill requires law enforcement officers to obtain a warrant if they wish to "obtain the location information, stored data, or transmitted data of an electronic device." Technologies exist that allow Utah police to bulk collect geolocation of people's cell phones, so this bill restricts their use and requires government agents to purge data on people who are not identified in the warrant.

    Libertas Institute supported this bill. Short of an emergency situation, no law enforcement officer should have access to a person's cell phone data without consent or without a warrant.

    This bill passed the House 71-2 and passed the Senate unanimously. Libertas supports a "yea" vote.
