  • OPEN GOVERNMENT: In August 2011, Grove was one of the first three legislators to release their office budgets to the public. Freshman Republicans Tim Donnelly, Grove, and Kristin Olsen released up-to-date reports of their expenditures after Rules Committee chair Nancy Skinner declined to release the current reports, citing the Legislative Open Records Act (LORA).
  • REMOTE VOTING: One of ten legislators (all Republican Senators) who have attended a floor session remotely using teleconferencing equiptment (August 28-31, 2020).
