The health and well being of the citizens of Arizona is vital for a prosperous community. Choosing your own doctor and health care professionals is also important as a free citizen of the United States. When your freedoms are compromised, I feel that I'm the person that will listen and be a strong voice for you.
During the regular session, I helped to keep our children and citizens safe by introducing bill HB2356, which was voted into law this year. The bill addresses the growing issue of a synthetic drug known as "bath salts". It expands the definition of dangerous drugs to include 7 chemical compounds that create "bath salts". Not only has this highly addictive and dangerous substance caused tragedy with families, but with extra costs in our hospitals and police forces. This new law is the first step to help continue to enforce safety and well being of our communities.
