Senator Niederhauser was featured in the news during the 2014 Session for some controversial Tweets. Two Utah lawmakers, including Senate President Wayne Niederhauser and Rep. Jake Anderegg, had a Twitter exchange about changing genders that drew quick outrage on social media. [4] Rep. Anderegg, posted Monday morning on Twitter that the private House men’s restroom was occupied, and he was "strongly considering a gender identifying change to use the open women’s." [4] That drew a response from Niederhauser’s account, teasing Anderegg for agreeing to co-sponsor a bill banning discrimination against gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender Utahns by tweeting back "now switching your gender identity? Just can’t keep up with you! You’re a new man. Er … woman." [4] Although Niederhauser later stated that the tweet actually came from an intern and not himself, the exchange drew instant outrage from other Twitter users, who scolded both lawmakers for making light of serious issue that has been at the forefront this legislative session.
