The 2013 session has ended. It was a privilege to work as an advocate for limited government, lower taxes and reduced regulation. I was successful in preventing several bad bills from coming to existence.
Below are a few bills that I introduced or sponsored that were signed into law:
HB2608: Eliminates pensions for politicians. I was appalled with the ridiculous pensions that were provided to our elected officials. Now in the state of Arizona politicians will have the same retirement options as the private sector.
HB2147: Reduces unemployment fraud. For about a decade Arizona has consistently ranked as one of the worst states at paying erroneous unemployment benefits. This bill was hailed by businesses and by two major papers as a bill that will make a major impact in Arizona.
HB2074: Reduces red tape on foster parents and children. This bill increases license validity from 1 to 2 years and allows siblings to stay together when making placements.
I will continue to work hard in the 2014 session to author and sponsor legislation that promotes freedom, prosperity and the protection of our inalienable rights.
If I can be of service to you please don't hesitate to contact me,
