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* Yes, for 2 reasons. First, because parents have the first and primary responsibility to make choices for their children. Second because the over reaching influence of government in our schools will only be curbed to the extent that we reduce the funding and out of controlled spending in the schools.
2. Should marijuana be legalized and sold commercially for recreational use? N* The primary reason the government wants to do this is so they can control it and tax it. Neither of those motivations work within the framework of limited government.
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* This is a yes and no question. Yes because government growth should be limited. No, because we should reduce government and not only limit its future growth.
6. Should state taxpayer funding be allowed for elective abortions? N
7. Should all voters be required to show identification before voting? Y* This is a yes and No question. Yes because we need to verify voters. This is very important. No because not everyone has photo ID (groups like the Amish) and they should not be forced to have Photo ID.
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
