As a state legislator, I have consistently supported balanced budgets without new taxes.
Since my first term in the State Assembly, I have fought for meaningful reforms to our public education system, supporting merit pay for teachers, common-sense improvements to personnel policies, and increased autonomy and flexibility for our local school districts.
During the 2001 Legislative Session, I introduced the first "Do Not Call List" legislation in Nevada, aimed at stopping abusive telemarketing practices.During the 2011 Legislative Session, I led the fight to require contractors to adopt the federal E-Verify system to ensure that all workers on state public works projects are legally eligible to work in the United States.

As a result, Brower's Washoe District 3 moved from a 3-point Democratic voter registration advantage to a 0.9-point lead towards Republicans.

Brower announced on November 14, 2011 that he would seek re-election to District 3.

Nevada Policy Research Institute
The Nevada Policy Research Institute, a Nevada-based conservative-libertarian think tank, releases a "Legislative Report Card" evaluating members of the Nevada State Legislature on "each lawmaker's voting record on legislation impacting the degree of economic freedom and education reform." Bills determined by the Institute to be of greater significance are weighted accordingly. According to the Institute, "a legislator with a score above 50 is considered to be an ally of economic liberty".
Bower received a score of 88.63% in the 2011 report card, ranking 2nd out of all 63 Nevada State Legislature members. Brower's score was tied with Michael Roberson. Senator Don Gustavson received a higher score of 89.1. Brower's score was followed by senators Elizabeth Halseth (88.15), and James Settelmeyer (87.68).
Brower and his wife, Loren, have two children.
