David Livingston is an American politician and a Republican member of the Arizona State Senate representing District 22 since January 14, 2019. He previously served in the Arizona House of Representatives from 2013 to 2019. During the 52nd Legislature of Arizona, Livingston was elected by his peers as the House Majority Whip. In February 2019 Livingston introduced SB 1475, which originally would have required teachers and real estate agents (and others who are required to provide fingerprints as part of licensing) to provide their DNA samples for a state DNA database. After public outcry, he amended the bill so that it would only apply to people licensed to provide direct care in an intermediate care facility to individuals with intellectual disabilities.
