I am honored to work for you at the Utah Legislature

I am sincerely honored to serve the community of Utah’s House District 24 – thank you! 2018 was a landmark year for electing more women to Utah’s legislature and we have a lot of work to do in 2019. The general session begins on January 28 and ends on March 14. As has been the trend for the last several years, we expect to see hundreds of bills introduced. I am excited to work on policy issues including our state’s opioid crisis, the rising cost of living that puts many Utahns’ housing stability at risk, patient safety, and more.

My committee assignments are Health and Human Services and Government Operations; my appropriations committee assignment is Social Services, which has a budget of nearly $6 billion and funds the Utah Department of Health, the Utah Department of Human Services, and the Utah Department of Workforce Services. It is a very complex budget and is the second largest budget in the state of Utah after education. I sincerely look forward to diving into this very important work.

If you would like to follow the work we are doing at the legislature, you can follow my blog at Utah24.blogspot.com or sign up to receive my newsletter.

My Guiding Philosophy

I am guided by the tenets of the Golden Rule, focusing on compassion, kindness and peace, which is articulated by the following Taoist quote: “To those who are good to me, I am good; to those are are not good to me, I am also good. Thus all get to be good. To those who are sincere with me, I am sincere; to those who are not sincere with me, I am also sincere. Thus all get to be sincere.”
