My Bills

Here is a list of my proposed bills for the 2019 session

Single-Sign-On Database Funding

H.B. 120 – Robert Rees – Drafting Attorney

Fund the development of the Single-Sign-On Business Portal as passed in 2015. This will be done by increasing the $25 business renewal fee by a nominal amount ($5). Only for-profit companies will be levied this increased fee.
The fee will be transferred to the Department of Technology Service (DTS) for the sole purpose of developing and maintaining the Single-Sign-On Business Portal

Technology Innovation Fund

FB 0556 – Robert Rees – drafting attorney

Establish a fund to be used by the DTS department to further innovations that improve inefficiencies in government using technology.
