I want to bring Utah's values to Washington. I'm a fifth generation Utahn, and was raised with Utah values: reverence for freedom, respect for others, and the importance of service, civility, and frugality. It's an honor to be serving the people of Utah in the United States Senate.

Agriculture

We should respect and appreciate the contribution of Utah's agricultural industry to our economy and our security by resolving the uncertainty and federal overreach associated with public land usage and fostering sustainable forest and land management policies.

Budget & Debt

I am a deficit hawk. It is inexcusable to add $500 billion to $1 trillion annually to the debt, saddling us and our children with hundreds of billions of dollars of interest. I oppose a budget process that prevents effective debate, amendments, and spending caps.

Clean Air, Energy, Water

We are fortunate Utah's coal power plants are at the forefront of the clean coal industry. I support greater efficiency standards in cars, trucks, and factories to reduce energy consumption and pollution. I also support the utilization of all our energy resources.

Education

I support policies that will move the return authority to the states and empower parents, not bureaucrats in Washington. I will work with my colleagues on the Health, Education, Labor & Pensions (HELP) Committee to tackle the true cost of higher education and student loans.

Foreign Policy & National Security

America's leadership and greatness is the result of our economic strength, a military that is second to none, our promotion of freedom, and the fundamental goodness of our people. We must promote our values through our diplomacy, economic ties, and alliances.

Health Care

The Affordable Care Act should be repealed and not replaced by another one-size-fits-all bureaucracy. In its place, states should be given flexibility with their Medicaid funds to implement their own programs for caring for the poor.

Immigration

I support legal immigration. I respect and welcome those who have followed the law and have made the United States their home. Our nation is stronger and more vibrant by virtue of a strong legal immigration system.

Life, Family, Religion

I am pro-life and pro-family. I will defend religious liberty and will only vote to confirm judicial nominees who will fully honor the First Amendment guarantee of the same.

Public Land

With two-thirds of Utah held as public land, it is my prioirty to obtain greater local and state involvement in decision-making and management of public lands.

Rural Utah

I’ve worked to push back against federal overreach on issues impacting our rural counties, advocated for greater local input in public land matters, and more.

Second Amendment

I support the Second Amendment. Gun laws and school safety measures should be established by each state, not imposed by the federal governement.

Taxes

I support the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. The corporate tax cut will not only let people keep more of their wages, but also helps raise their wages.

Trade

As a net export state, Utah benefits from foreign trade; therefore, I support trade with foreign countries. I oppose broad-based tariffs, but I will support focused tariffs that penalize cheaters and dumping.

Working Families

There are only two states where births are outpacing deaths, and one of them is Utah. That means a lot of Utah families are having children, and it also means added expenses for those families.
