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* I am blessed with 5 children. I know first hand that "one-size" doesn't fit all. We have children in public schools, home schooled, and private school. We are fortunate to have the freedom to be able to do what is best for each our children based on their needs at a specific time. All Pennsylvania families should have that ability.
2. Should marijuana be legalized and sold commercially 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* We need to limit the rapid rate of growth of government. Trying to keep government spending in line with inflation/population growth is a good benchmark. There may be times when are over or under this, but it is a good benchmark to strive for.
6. Should state taxpayer funding be allowed for elective abortions? N
7. Should all voters be required to show identification before voting? Y
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* In general yes money should follow the students. I also believe there is likely some base level of funding that institutions should likely be able to rely on such as for capital projects and core programs.
