Gazette Opinion:

Q: What would you do to ensure that West Virginia protects communities from adverse environmental and public health impacts of the rising natural gas industry?

A: Current laws and regulations need to be enforced and we need to adequately fund the agencies that oversee these laws and regulations.

Q: What legislation would you push to diversify West Virginia’s economy?

A: Supporting broadband expansion will attract new businesses and supporting free tuition for students attending community and technical schools will provide a skilled workforce for existing and new businesses.

Q: How should West Virginia fund PEIA?

A: PEIA has been funded from general revenue and I continue to support that.

Daily Mail Opinion:

Q: Do you support the current practice of “civil asset forfeiture,” whereby state law enforcement can seize property from citizens even if they are never charged with a crime?

A: The present civil asset forfeiture law needs to be changed to exclude people who have not been charged with a crime.

Q: Should West Virginia join the 43 other states that allow students to attend public charter schools?

A: I support charter schools.

Q: Should the severance tax on natural gas (currently at 5 percent) be raised, lowered or kept the same?
