2016 Session Has Begun!!!

Some Important bills I am working on:

Public Notice of Court Recording

SB42: This is an important piece of legislation that will help to create more transparency within our court system. The law would require courtrooms to inform those present that they are being recorded audibly and visually.

Public Safety Emergency Management Amendments

SB57: I am very excited about this bill because it will provide new tools for Utah in the case of a disaster. By working with the postal service, our state can be the first to implement an innovative approach to emergency preparedness. This bill lays the groundwork for creating a system where our state can use postal workers to help when disaster strikes.

Hot Bills On the Hill:

  • SB65 Internet Sales Tax

96% of the respondents believe that Party Caucuses should be open.

59% Support funding Planned Parenthood.

40% Oppose funding Planned Parenthood.

55% Are not satisfied with current transportation options.

67% Are not happy with the Department of Alcohol Beverage Control

37% Believe that public lands should be transferred to the State

These responses came only from voters in our district.
