Question Response Comments/Notes
1. Should education funding be available directly to families through a grant, scholarship, or education savings account so that parents can send their children to the school of their choice, including religious schools? Y* It is the parents' responsibility to make sure their children are educated and that choices in educational opportunity serve families and children best. No child's access to effective education should be limited by their zip code.
2. Should marijuana be legalized and sold commercially for recreational use? N* I do not think legalization of marijuana is in the people's best interests. The world of illegal drug distribution is harmful to our communities. If we simply legalize marijuana I think that these dangerous criminal organizations will fill the void with other illegal and potentially more hazardous substances.
3. Should the Pennsylvania Human Relations Act be amended to include "sexual orientation" and "gender identity," which would require public schools and other public facilities to open up restrooms and locker rooms to members of the opposite sex? N
4. Should Pennsylvania enter into the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative, which would include a new carbon tax on electricity producers? N* The RGGI will without question make energy more expensive in PA, thus making it harder for PA businesses to compete in national and international markets.
5. Should increases in state government spending be limited to the rate of inflation plus population growth? Y* I would fully support legal limits on how fast the state government can expand its own budget. Tying that growth to some sort of CPI or inflation rate /population growth seems to me to be a reasonable way to accomplish this.
6. Should state taxpayer funding be allowed for elective abortions? N
7. Should all voters be required to show identification before voting? Y
8. Should striking union members have access to unemployment compensation? N
9. Should public schools be prohibited from allowing males who identify as females to compete in girls’ sports? Y
10. Should schools have to post curriculum online for review by parents and taxpayers? Y
11. Should funding for public and state-related universities follow the student rather than go directly to the institution? Y
