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.
- HB94: Investigational Drug and Device Access for Terminally Ill Patients (2015)
This bill allows terminally ill patients to legally obtain and use an investigational drug or device that has not received full FDA clearance.
This bill passed the House 69-3 and passed the Senate unanimously. Libertas supports a "yea" vote.
- HB105: Plant Extract Amendments (2014)
This bill allowed children with intractable epilepsy to legally use a "hemp extract" (composed of less than 0.3% THC) by obtaining a hemp extract registration card under supervision of a neurologist.
Libertas Institute supported this bill, as we argue that no government agent should stand between a doctor and his patient. Many individuals have found great benefit in other states from cannabis oil treatment. We believe that Utahns should be afforded the same legal opportunity to have access to this treatment.
This bill passed the House 58-9 and passed the Senate 26-0. Libertas supports a "yea" vote.
