Rep. Stewart Barlow

Doctor caucus » The Fruit Heights Republican was the only physician in the Legislature when he was appointed in 2011 to fill the vacancy left by Rep. Julie Fisher, who was named to Gov. Gary Herbert’s Cabinet. But when he returned to Capitol Hill this year after winning election last November, he was joined by three colleagues who also are medical doctors.

Bills » In addition to successfully sponsoring HCR2, the resolution on reducing obesity in Utah, Barlow is pushing bills to protect the privacy of individuals’ personal Internet accounts (HB100S2), to develop a demonstration project on consumer-focused health care delivery and payment reform (HB140) and a resolution to add Parkinson’s Disease to the state’s registry of diseases (HCR8).

Contact » You can contact Barlow at 801-544-4708 (home) or 801-289-6699 (cell) or email him at sbarlow@le.utah.gov.
