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, the 2019 session was a whirlwind of new experiences - with both successes and disappointments. I am thrilled to continue 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. To see a list of the bills that I am sponsoring in the 2020 Session, you can visit this LINK.
My standing 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.
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.”
