Pictured above are my interns (and one extra helper) with Ben McAdams. I really appreciated all the help I received this session!

Here is a summary of the bills I passed this session:

SB0014 Long-term Care Partnership – This bill requires the Utah Department of Health to amend the state Medicaid plan to create a qualified long-term care insurance partnership.

SB0015 Reemployment Restrictions Amendments – This bill modifies the Utah State Retirement and Insurance Benefit Act by amending post-retirement employment restrictions.

SB0028 Utah Retirement Amendments – This bill modifies the Utah State Retirement and Insurance Benefit Act and the Utah State Personnel Management Act by amending retirement provisions.

SB0090S01 Residency Amendments – This bill amends provisions of the Election Code relating to residency.

SB0137S01 Health Care Professional Truth in Advertising – This bill amends the unprofessional and unlawful conduct provisions of the Division of Occupational and Professional Licensing Act to require all licensed health care providers to disclose to a patient the health care provider’s type of license and name.

SB0143S01 Nail Technician Practice Amendments – This bill modifies statewide amendments to the International Mechanical Code and modifies the Barber, Cosmetologist/Barber, Esthetician, Electrologist, and Nail Technician Licensing Act.

SB0173S01 Child Protection Amendments – This bill modifies provisions of the Juvenile Court Act.

SB0189 Residence Lien Restriction Amendments – This bill modifies provisions relating to eligibility for claims against the Residence Lien Recovery Fund.

SB0196S01 Medical Waste Incineration Prohibition – This bill deals with the incineration of infectious waste and chemotherapeutic agents.

SB0221S01 Indigent Counsel in Juvenile Court – This bill amends provisions related to the appointment of counsel for indigents in juvenile court proceedings.

SB0222 Automatic License Plate Reader System Amendments – This bill modifies the Traffic Code by amending provisions relating to automatic license plate reader systems.

SB0227 Exposure of Children to Pornography – This bill amends provisions related to factors a court shall consider in a child custody determination and in a termination of parental rights proceeding.

SB0267S01 Governmental Immunity Act Amendments – This bill modifies a provision relating to the filing of a notice of claim.

SB 96 — my lobbyist disclosure bill — died in the House. I will continue to pursue this issue because I believe we need more openness and transparency in the mid-term vacancy process.

My home teacher, Bob Williams, came and visited with me on the Senate floor.
