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 have voted for this at each oppurtunity. In this yrs budget i ensured that we budgeted an unprecented amount of money for families to use to send their children to the schools of their choosing and growing the EITC program for business and families to work together.
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

12. Should the gasoline tax be permanently reduced? N* That sounds good politically but we struggle to maintain and keep but the much needed repairs and replacements to our 24k bridge structures and 40k plus miles of road way. What we need to do i allow for more gas and petroleum exploration in Pa and the united states to take advantage of the vast amt of resources here in Pa rather then pay foriegn countries for their oil. That will drive down our gas prices and help them be more affordable and stable.
