The US Supreme Court recently struck down federal mandates that forced Americans to inoculate themselves against COVID-19. Additionally, the Centers for Disease Control and the Biden Administration abandoned effective life-saving therapeutics that cost the lives of millions of people who were denied anti-body treatment.  Instead, they were forced to vaccinate.

Government mandates are a violation of our individual freedom in making personal health decisions.  In 2021, I passed a resolution in the Utah Republican Party, outlining the breach of individual liberty and calling for the legislature to act immediately. The resolution strengthened legislation that passed, eliminating vaccine mandates in Utah. I also supported the legislature’s action to rid Salt Lake County’s health order that reestablished mask mandates for adults and youth. 

As your senator, I will sponsor and vote for legislation that prohibits mandates for vaccination, face-coverings, and provides protection from Utahns losing their jobs.
