Question Response Comments/Notes
1. Should the state prohibit abortion when it is sought because of a prenatal diagnosis of possible Down syndrome? -* My personal beliefs aside, the state serves us well by staying out of medical consultation rooms. Families deserve privacy. Aborting a pregnancy is sad enough.
2. Should marijuana be legalized for recreational use? -* I support legalizing marijuana use. The Cannabis plant has medicinal value for some. I don't encourage recreational use, which is not without risk.
3. Should Pennsylvania raise the minimum wage? Y
4. Should parents be eligible for direct grants for their children to attend the school of their choice, including non-public schools? U* Under select and limited circumstances, yes, grants for home schooling may be worthwhile and productive.
5. Should wedding service providers be required to participate in a same-sex wedding that they object to on religious grounds? N
6. Should organizations, such as Planned Parenthood, that provide abortions be prohibited from receiving state funds? N
7. Should schools and other public institutions collect direct payroll deductions for union dues? Y
8. Should Pennsylvania public schools and other public facilities be required to open up restrooms and locker rooms regardless of biological sex? -* Rest rooms, yes, or devise appropriate accommodation; locker rooms, no.
9. Should the state stop paying for sex-change surgeries for children? Y* Except under the very most unusual circumstances.
10. Should Pennsylvania withhold state funding to “Sanctuary Cities” that do not comply with federal immigration laws? N
11. Should school property taxes be eliminated? -* Public school financial support must be secure. I advocate minimizing residential real estate tax and eliminating it in cases producing household insecurity.
