Question Response Comments/Notes
1. Would you (or did you) support the federal "Equality Act" (H.R. 5) creating a protected class for sexual orientation and gender identity be passed into law? N
2. Would you (or did you) support the federal “Respect for Marriage Act” (H.R. 8404) which requires states to recognize polygamous marriages? N
3. Should adult citizens be required to pass a background check before buying ammunition? Y Note: They should be checked for prior convictions, and have no record of mental instability.
4. Would you (or did you) support a federal law (H.R. 8296) removing nearly all restrictions on abortion procedures throughout pregnancy? N
5. Should the federal government require public district and charter schools to allow biological boys in girls’ bathrooms, locker rooms, and showers, and on female-only sports teams as a condition to receive federal education funding? N Note: The safety of all students is the first priority.
6. Would you support securing the border by blocking crossings from undocumented migrants? Y Note: We need to finish the wall, utilize all technologies and weapons to aid and protect border patrol.
7. Would you support federal judges who apply the original text of the U.S. Constitution according to the framers’ original intent, rather than interpreting it in light of current times? Y Note: Precedent cannot override intent. The recently struck down federal abortion law, now correctly relegated to the states, is one such case.
8. Would you support an amendment to the U.S. Constitution requiring Congress to balance the federal budget every year? N Note: It should be the standard but we can't let the vehicle determine our options and an annual accounting for every budget item may not be reasonable, but parameters must be established .
9. Would you (or did you) support a law (H.R. 1) requiring the federal government to take over local and state election processes? N
10. Would you support the filibuster rule that requires 60 votes in the U.S. Senate to pass most legislation? N
