Brad Wilson on Government Reform

 

 


Opposes unnecessary or burdensome cryptocurrency regulation

As a member of the U.S. Senate, Brad will oppose excessive regulation that hinders job creation and economic growth. America must lead in the cryptocurrency sector by adopting a regulatory approach that promotes innovation while upholding existing consumer protections. We do not need a separate set of rules for cryptocurrency. Brad will oppose unnecessary or burdensome cryptocurrency regulation.

For procedures to improve and verify results of balloting

While not embracing the election fraud narrative, Wilson pointed to a recently completed audit of the state's election systems that called for new procedures to improve and verify the results of the balloting. "Upholding the election process is key to our democracy, and our state will continue to provide proper oversight and ensure election integrity. Utah has high standards for elections because we proactively look for ways to improve our process and build trust," Wilson said.

Repealed restrictions on government records access

HB477: This bill modifies provisions of the Government Records Access and Management Act (GRAMA) relating to government records.

Deseret News summary: Utah lawmakers repealed a widely criticized law restricting access to many government records. The [repealed] bill largely exempted the Legislature and several forms of electronic communication, allowed for increased fees for records requests and erased language favoring openness. Gov. Herbert called the Legislature into special session to reconsider the bill after a huge public outcry galvanized the community. The governor said, "As the Legislature re-examines Utah's GRAMA statutes [for further changes, I hope they'll], protect the public's right to know, protect an individual's legitimate right to privacy, and protect taxpayer dollars."

Legislative Outcome: Passed Senate 23-6-0 on Mar/7/11; Passed House 42-29-4 on Mar/7/11State Rep. Brad Wilson voted YES; Signed by Governor Gary Herbert on Mar/8/11
