A graduate of Prescott High and the University of Arizona with a degree in Animal Science, Steve has continued the family tradition of ranching living on the Las Vegas Ranch over five decades.

In the Senate, Steve served as Whip, President pro-tem and a popular Senate President during the 2012 Legislative Session. He is the immediate Past President and now serves as Chairman of Natural Resources Committee and serves as a member of the Judiciary and Transportation Committees.
