Question Response Comments/Notes
1. Should the state prohibit abortion when it is sought because of a prenatal diagnosis of possible Down syndrome? Y
2. Should marijuana be legalized for recreational use? U* I can see Pros and Cons to this, but personally I'm not in favor of legalization.
3. Should Pennsylvania raise the minimum wage? U* There have been studies that show that raising minimum wage will not solve the problem, it will just create a new set of problems. I have no problem with raising it in incremental stages but you can't raise it by $4.00 overnight.
4. Should parents be eligible for direct grants for their children to attend the school of their choice, including non-public schools?
