Rep. Winder did not have what would be considered a traditional "freshman's Session."  Rep. Winder arrived and from day one began to move important public policy. His legislation that provides grants to educators who help our kids in some of Utah's most challenging classrooms is one of the great achievements of this year's General Session. He's smart, collaborative, and most importantly, effective!

--Greg Hughes, Speaker of the House
