Issues

    Ethics Reform:

    • Ending the existing model of self-policing and replace it with an independent panel.
    • Mandate total disclosure of all income sources
    • Impose real penalties for ethics violations (Jail for those who knowingly break the law)
    • If you serve as the President Pro Tem of the Senate, Speaker of the House, or Speaker Pro Tem, you may not serve as a committee chairman.

    2nd Amendment, Pro-Life:

    • Continue to push for more CWP reciprocity agreements with states in which we do not have an agreement
    • Support Constitutional Carry, favor the Mike Pitts version of the Bill
    • Proud supporter of the pro-life movement, and will do everything within your power to promote and protect the rights of the unborn

    Taxes and Pension:

    • Start closing the antiquated tax loopholes we have in our tax code
    • Make corporate/business taxes fair so that everyone is competing on a level playing field
    • Completely revamp the personal tax system to make it more fair and flat so that everyone has some skin in the game.
    • Start looking at alternative methods to avoid another Pension crisis. Current Retirement Investment Commissioners should lose their salaries for investing employees money into extremely high risk investments which has led to a major crisis that is hurting our current state retirees as well as those currently paying into the system.
