Government Accountability and Ethics

Hard-working Utahns are accountable for their actions. Government should be, too. In Congress I’ll push for regular audits of the federal budget to ensure tax dollars are not wasted and we keep the budget balanced, and I’ll work to require members of Congress to post their schedules online, including when they meet with special interests.

I’ll fight for ethics reform to make sure members of Congress focus on service, rather than personal gain. I believe members of Congress should be banned from using taxpayer dollars to fly first class and from taking trips paid for by corporate lobbyists. I support a cooling off period after someone leaves Congress before they can become a lobbyist, and I’ll fight to close loopholes and strengthen laws that stop the revolving door between Congress and lobbying firms.
