 Legislation:

  •  Upcoming in 2023:

    • Proposal to Amend Utah Constitution -- Rights Relating to Abortion

    • Gestational Agreement Amendments

  • SB 174: Utah's Trigger Ban on Abortion. (2022) Voted Yes. Bill Sponsor. The ACLU Utah filed a lawsuit on behalf of Planned Parenthood challenging SB174, which took effect shortly after the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, arguing that the law violated rights to bodily integrity and privacy recognized by Utah's constitution.   The law could mean criminal charges for women who end their own pregnancies if it goes into effect.

  • HB 11: Prohibits transgender girls from participating in school sports activities. (2022) Voted Yes. Gov. Spencer Cox vetoed H.B. 11. Sen. McCay introduced the substitute version passed by the Legislature.  The bill was substantially changed in the final hours of the 2022 legislative session with no public input and in a way that could bankrupt the Utah High School Athletic Association and will result in millions of dollars in legal fees.  "The law ... singles out transgender girls in order to exclude them from girls' sports. It bars every transgender girl from competing on a girls' team regardless of her medical care or individual circumstances," the ACLU said in their statement.

  • HB 182: Local Health Department Order Amendments. (2022) Voted Yes. Prohibits city mayors from exercising emergency powers in response to a pandemic or an epidemic. Centralizes decision making powers in favor of the Legislative Branch and removes local control in the decision making process. Passed.

(2022) Voted No. Requires school districts to adopt plans for harassment- and discrimination-free learning; requires the Utah State Board of Education to provide training on antidiscrimination statutes; and requires USBE and school districts to report data on the demographics of victims of bullying, hazing, cyber-bullying, and retaliation. The bill passed 19-10 in the Senate and 65-9-1 in the House.

  • SB 115: Firearm Preemption Amendments(2022)  Voted Yes. Declares the Utah state legislature is the sole governing body that can regulate firearms and ammunition unless it explicitly states otherwise and removes local control in the decision making process. Passed.
