House District 09

Rep. Gary Hicks: (R) Member, Finance, Ways, & Means Committee, Finance, Ways, & Means Subcommittee, State Committee, Public Service & Employees Subcommittee, Joint Pensions and Insurance Committee. No negatives for Rep. Hicks, but only 2 co-sponsorships of TLRC approved bills to his credit. His votes reflect a disagreement regarding the legalization of sports gambling and alcohol sales/consumption on university campuses, which reflects a more libertarian point of view. We have a difficult time understanding the objection to a fiscal review appeal process which he voted against. We admire his mild manner and hope to forge a more productive relationship in 2020. In 2018: Sponsored no (0) bills keyed by TLRC. Co-sponsored six (6) bills keyed by TLRC. Was instrumental, along with other members of the committee, for saving HB2315 (anti-sanctuary cities bill) from a bad voice-vote call by chairman Charles Sargent in House Finance Ways & Means. Voted for the Gas Tax.
