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* As a former homeschool parent and now a parent of children that attend a private Christian school, I can see the benefits of having funding directly go to the families for their children's education. Parents need to have the resources that help their child succeed in education.
2. Should marijuana be legalized and sold commercially for recreational use? N* Legalizing recreational marijuana would only increase the crime and be a gateway for others to try more drugs. It would do more harm to our state than good.
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* Overall state spending should be reduced.
6. Should state taxpayer funding be allowed for elective abortions? N* We need to respect life and not glorify death. Taxpayers should not be funding abortions especially when it would go against their faith beliefs.
7. Should all voters be required to show identification before voting? Y* Voter ID is just one way of ensuring election integrity and should be required.
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* Title IX was created to protect female sports and we need to uphold that.
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
