“It will be of little avail to the people, if the laws be so voluminous that they cannot be read, or so incoherent that they cannot be understood.”
James Madison
“Frequent recurrence to fundamental principles is essential to the security of individual rights and the perpetuity of free government.”
Utah’s Constitution, Article I, Section 27
“Liberty lies in the hearts of men and women; when it dies there, no constitution, no law, no court can save it.”
Learned Hand
“The argument for liberty is not an argument against organization, which is one of the most powerful tools human reason can employ, but an argument against all exclusive, privileged, monopolistic organization, against the use of coercion to prevent others from doing better.”
F.A. Hayek
“Just because you don’t take an interest in politics doesn’t mean politics won’t take an interest in you.”
Pericles
“I would rather be exposed to the inconveniences attending too much liberty than to those attending too small a degree of it.”
Thomas Jefferson
“If the natural tendencies of mankind are so bad that it is not safe to permit people to be free, how is it that the tendencies of these organizers are always good? Do not the legislators and their appointed agents also belong to the human race? Or do they believe that they themselves are made from a finer clay than the rest of mankind?”
Frederic Bastiat
“Once the principle is admitted that it is the duty of the government to protect the individual against his own foolishness, no serious objections can be advanced against further encroachments.”
Ludwig von Mises

Utah’s Budget

We are lucky to have one of the best fiscal analyst departments in the country. They have also created some awesome online dashboards to so that everyone in the state can view the budget and the states “fiscal health”. The links below will take you to the states website.

Utah Fiscal Health Dashboard

Compendium of Budget Dashboard

Utah Budget Quick Facts – This is a pocket-sized card that provides an overview of the state budget including some related information on demographics, rates, obligations, and reserves.

Budget of the State of Utah, 2015-2016 – This is a comprehensive (aka LONG 380 page) report detailing each transaction in the budget. Like the above, it includes a statewide summary, but goes further to include a chapter for each appropriations subcommittee. It serves as the Utah’s only historical documentation of the entire state budget all in one place.

Interactive Appropriations Summary – Our online interactive summary of the budget is still available. We’ve added a “search” function to the last tab so that you can easily find a budget change item in which you might be interested. There’s also a video showing how to use the tool – just click the YouTube icon on any of the tabs.

About Me

I currently serve on the Natural Resources, Agriculture, and Environmental Quality Appropriation Committee, the house Business and Labor Standing Committee and as the Vice Chair of the House Law Enforcement and Criminal Justice Standing Committee. I was also appointed to serve as a member of the State Sentencing Commission.

I grew up in Provo and am the oldest of 10 children. I served an LDS mission from 2000 – 2002 to Mendoza Argentina. After my mission I somehow managed to marry my high school sweetheart, Casey. We now have 5 children.

I attended BYU where I earned a bachelors degree in Civil Engineering and played for 2.5 years on the BYU basketball team before I had to stop due to complications with my knees.

I am an owner of a successful electronic payments company in Spanish Fork called Platinum Payment Systems and have recently started a new business venture called Zift, an electronic payments technology platform.

I have a passion for learning and at any given time have about 4 different books on my night stand. In the evening or on weekends you might find me playing basketball, volleyball, softball, riding horses, hunting, hiking, fishing, mountain biking, shooting guns, wrestling and playing with my kids, tinkering on the computer, working in my garden, checking my beehives, hanging out with my family, playing the ukulele, piano, or on a date with my wife.

I believe the proper role of government is to secure our rights to our life, our liberty, and our property and will do all I can to make sure those rights are not infringed upon and to secure them for future generations.
