Question Response Comments/Notes
1. Should education funding be directed to families through a voucher, scholarship, or education savings account so that parents can send their children to the school of their choice, including non-public schools? Y* I believe that any school can benefit by this if they are supplying quality education to students.
2. Should marijuana be legalized for recreational use? N
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
5. Should increases in state government spending be limited to the rate of inflation plus population growth? Y
6. Should our state constitution be amended to prevent taxpayer funding for elective abortions? U* I don't believe the constitution should be amended but I also don't believe that taxpayers should have to fund abortions. I will have to look into this matter more to see if there would be an alternative way to address this issue.
7. Should all voters be required to show identification before voting? Y
8. Should the state reduce police funding to increase funding for social services? 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? N* I don't believe schools should have to post the curriculum online but I do believe it should be available to every parent or taxpayer who wishes to review it. Parents have a right and an obligation to know what their children are being taught and either agree with it or be able to opt their children out of it. After speaking with a local teacher, I believe that posting curriculum online could cause a hardship for teachers due to the increase in time it would take to do so.
11. Should Pennsylvania municipalities be permitted to require a vaccine passport? N
12. Should the gasoline tax be permanently reduced? U* I will have to look into this to see how a reduction to the gasoline tax could be supplemented.
13. Should schools be required to notify parents of any sexually explicit content in books or instructional materials?
