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".[5]


Denis received a score of 32.23 percent in the 2011 report card, ranking 48th out of all 63 Nevada State Legislature members.[5]


Denis and his wife, Susan, have five children: Diana Marie, Dustin Lee, Daniel Carlos, Denae Virgilia and Dallin Moises.
