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.
- SB110: Sales Tax Collection Amendments (2017)
This bill would have compelled out-of-state companies to collect and remit sales taxes on purchases made by Utahns, if and when the company sells more than $100,000 in product or services to Utahns. It would have created up to $94 million in new revenue for the government without a corresponding tax decrease to be revenue neutral. This bill passed the Senate 25-1 but failed to pass a House committee. Libertas supports a "nay" vote, because out-of-state companies should not be deputized into tax collectors for the state of Utah, and the government should not be given new revenue without a corresponding tax decrease.
