Question Response Comments/Notes
1. Pubic Schools in Montana are overfunded: S
2. Pubic Schools in Montana are underfunded: O
3. Pubic Schools in Montana are adequately funded: O
4. Parental choice in education should be expanded through tax credits, education savings accounts, vouchers, and other means to allow children to attend any school of their or their parents choice: SS
5. Montana should allow public charter schools: S
6. Parents should be allowed to home school their children without additional state regulation: SS
7. The teaching of "Critical Race Theory" (CRT) should be banned in Montana public schools: SS
8. Comprehensive sex education, beginning as early as kindergarten, should be allowed in public elementary schools: SO* There is too much Government overreach in our schools. Parents are the ones who know what is best for their children and families, not the school districts, Department of Education or the teacher's unions for that matter. Parents should have the option on where to send their children; district, public, private or home school.
9. Income taxes in Montana are too high: SS
10. Property taxes in Montana are too high: SS
11. Corporate taxes in Montana are too high: SS
12. The 2nd Amendment to the U.S. Constitution allows all citizens to own firearms for self-protection: SS
13. Global warming is a problem requiring increased regulation: SO
14. Environmental regulations in Montana are too stringent: SS
15. Environmental regulations in Montana are NOT stringent enough: SO* Taxes in Montana are out of control. The working class can not afford to continue to live here. Retired people living on limited income can not afford to continue to live here. Housing is almost non existent for moderate to low income families in Ravalli County. I couldn't afford to buy here if I were just moving here. I couldn't afford to rent, if I could even find something available. I'm for deregulation. We have too much Government control over every aspect of our lives.
16. Montanans should not be discriminated against or treated differently because of their vaccine status: SS* I voted and support HB 400. We should not be forced to take any drug or vaccine for work, school, travel, etc. We should not be treated any differently than anyone else; vaccinated or unvaccinated, masked or unmasked. I refused to wear masks during the mandates and still refuse to wear them. I will not accept a vaccine and should not be restricted to travel or entrance to participate in commerce, work, school, or anything because of it. I have refused to participate in many activities because I'm required to prove I don't have the virus, required to show vaccination status or wear a mask. My activities have been restricted just because of those choices. I shouldn't have to make those types of decisions and neither should anyone.
17. Doctor assisted suicide should be legal in Montana: O
18. Abortion should be banned in ALL stages of pregnancy: SS
19. Abortion should be banned during all stages of pregnancy, with the exceptions for rape and incest: O
20. Abortion should be banned only after a heartbeat is detected (around 6 weeks): O
21. Abortion should be banned only after the first trimester (12 weeks): O
22. Abortion should be banned only when a fetus becomes viable outside the womb (20 weeks): O
23. Abortion should be banned only after the 2nd trimester (28 weeks): O
24. Abortion should never be banned, not at any stage of pregnancy: SO
25. The Montana Constitution should be amended to ban abortion: SS
26. Infanticide (infants born alive with physical abnormalities, including infants born as a result of a botched abortion) should be banned in Montana. SS
27. Companies and individuals should be allowed to opt-out of the abortion related mandates contained in Obamacare: SS* I support life and am against abortion. I believe life starts at conception. I will vote for all pro-life bills no matter what. So, I will support life at any stage. That includes doctor assisted suicide. While I am for personal liberty, I am not in favor of allowing a person (doctor or anyone) assist another person end their life. It may be more humane to allow a doctor to assist the person, but it is still ending life. The individual may have the ability and liberty to end their own life but I'm not in favor of legally allowing someone else to do it for them.
28. Transgender athletes should be allowed to compete against athletes of the opposite sex: SO
29. Doctors should be banned from performing sex-change procedures on minors: SS
30. Homosexuals and transgender people should be allowed to adopt children: O
31. Non-discrimination laws should be expanded to protect sexual orientation and gender identity in the same way that race, creed, nationality, and religion are protected: SO
32. Montana’s marriage laws should be changed to reflect the recent legalization of same-sex marriage by the U.S. Supreme Court: SO* I'm in favor of allowing ADULTS do what they want with THEIR lives, regarding sexual orientation and gender identity. That doesn't include minors or the adult's own children (regarding sexual orientation or gender identity). Minors are not able to make the life long decisions that in many cases can not be reversed without harm.
