Mike Lee Isn’t Afraid to Stand Alone in Washington, Because He’s Standing With Us here in Utah


USA Freedom Act

Senator Lee better secured Americans’ Fourth Amendment rights against the NSA’s collection of private citizen information without a warrant. The USA Freedom Act ended bulk collection of personal data and fortified national security by closing loopholes that prevented tracking of known terrorists in the country.

The Child Tax Credit

Senator Lee made it a priority to protect families in the 2017 tax reform bill. The Child Tax Credit doubled for each child from $1,000 to $2,000.

Criminal Justice Reform

One of Senator Lee’s top priorities entering the U.S. Senate was criminal justice reform. After eight years of work, Senator Lee co-wrote the First Step Act in 2018. This act reforms federal prisons and sentencing laws in order to reduce recidivism, decrease the federal inmate population, and maintain public safety.

Regulatory Reform

Federal regulation costs $2 trillion a year. Senator Lee has consistently co-sponsored the REINS Act, which would require any regulation that costs over $100 million to the economy to first receive approval from Congress.

About Mike Lee

A Champion For Principled Leadership

Mike learned his love for the Constitution around the family dinner table. Mike’s father, Rex Lee, served as Solicitor General under President Ronald Reagan and later as President of Brigham Young University. As a child, Mike attended his father’s arguments before the U.S. Supreme Court, giving him a unique understanding of the government from an early age. As an attorney he developed a more complete understanding of why the Constitution is essential to the protection of life, liberty, and property.

After graduating from law school in 1997, he served as a law clerk to Judge Dee Benson of the U.S. District Court for the District of Utah. He then clerked for Judge Samuel A. Alito, Jr., who was serving at that time on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit Court in Newark, New Jersey. After his second clerkship, he joined the Washington, D.C. office of Sidley & Austin, where he specialized in appellate and Supreme Court litigation. Several years later, Mike was invited to serve as an Assistant U.S. Attorney in Salt Lake City, preparing briefs and arguing cases before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit. He served as Governor Huntsman’s General Counsel and then went to Washington for a one-year clerkship with Justice Alito at the U.S. Supreme Court.

Following his clerkship, Mike joined the Salt Lake office of the Washington, D.C.-based law firm of Howrey LLP. Mike has earned a reputation as an outstanding lawyer based on his sound judgment, writing and courtroom advocacy skills, and thorough understanding of the Constitution.

Mike and Sharon have three children and live in Provo, Utah.
