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.
- HB332: Criminal Procedure Revisions (2017)
This bill would have allowed juries to be informed about the potential sentenced faced by a defendant whose fate they are tasked with deciding.
This bill failed in the House on a 29-45 vote. Libertas supports a "yea" vote.
- HB104: Cow-share Program Amendments (2015)
In 2007, the Utah legislature banned herd share agreements whereby multiple people could jointly possess, and drink the milk from, one or more cows, sheep, or goats. This bill legalized them, though limited only to two cows, 10 sheep, and 10 goats. Additionally, the Department of Agriculture is prohibited from creating regulations dealing with herd share program participants.
This bill passed out of the House 61-11 and passed the Senate unanimously. Libertas supports a "yea" vote.
- HB70: Forcible Entry Amendments (2014)
This bill introduced caution into the forcible entry (home invasion) warrant process, increasing the legal standard by which they may be authorized and requiring that only reasonable and necessary force be used, among other changes made.
HB70 can save lives (both police officers and citizens) and reduce damage to property. Accordingly, we strongly supported this amendment to Utah's laws.
This bill passed the House 69-6 and passed the Senate unanimously. Libertas supports a "yea" vote.
