Right to Earn a Living Act

March 26, 2017 · 3 Comments 

SB 1437 – Signed!  The right to earn an honest living is a fundamental right.  SB 1437 places the burden on the government rather than citizens to prove the necessity of certain rules & policies. Is this a problem? Check this out.  Learn more about the Act from The Daily Signal & the Goldwater Institute.  Governor Ducey praises “Right to Earn a Living Act” sponsored by Sen. Barto.  Read my editorial here.

A Big Thank You!

December 24, 2016 · Leave a Comment 

Thank you to all 62,691 voters in our district who voted to return me to the State Senate – by a 63.26% to 36.74% margin.  I appreciate your support and confidence and will work diligently on your behalf to preserve liberty and make state government accountable and just.

A “Special Thank You” to those of you who put in some serious sweat equity on my behalf – especially during the summer months – by walking your precincts and making sure your neighbors were registered to vote, informed, and actually made it to the polls and voted – (you know who you are, Pyramid Peak PCs, under the leadership of Jerry Licata!  You are so appreciated!) Thanks to so many who contributed financially, displayed my yard signs and donated your time and alents in other ways.  It all helped and the final numbers reflect it.

‘End-of-Life’ Conscience Protections

April 3, 2017 · Leave a Comment 

Opponents of SB 1439 apparently don’t like current protections in law protecting physicians’ right not to participate in a treatment intentionally ending the life of a patient a.k.a. assisted suicide, certain advanced directives or administering a death row lethal injection.  So when SB 1439 was proposed making sure physicians’ conscience protections have a means of enforcement against discrimination when their rights are exercised, all kinds of myths were spread.  Read my editorial, Myths, misunderstanding about end-of-life legislation.  Thankfully, Governor Ducey understood the need for the bill and signed it into law.
