I believe in strong education reform. A strong education leads to a bright future for our citizens and state. I will support most bills that will bring in revenue to the board of education and allow Alabama schools to receive more money (within reason).
I support legislation to help reduce prison overcrowding, bring more money into the prisons system and help rehabilitate criminals so they will not break the law again.
I favor the death penalty but not in a cruel or unusual way.
I fully support legislation that will bring new jobs to Alabama. The unemployment rate is currently 6.2 percent. Jobs are crucial to the state economy, and I believe that with more jobs, we can bring in more revenue for the state and help reduce the current state debt of $68.3 million.
I support laws that will legalize gambling and establish a state lottery. I believe casinos and a lottery will bring tourists, revenue and reform to our state.
I believe in the legalization of marijuana. Legalization of marijuana will reduce the number of criminals in prison and help resolve prison overcrowding.
I do not support the legalization of any other drug currently considered illegal.
U.S. SUPREME COURT
I believe in upholding the current rulings of the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) and I do not support legislation that conflicts with Supreme Court rulings.
The current state budget is atrocious. I fully support bills that will help reallocate funds in the state budget to reduce state debt and reduce unnecessary spending.
I am in affirmation of the Second Amendment.
I support legislation that prevents criminals and the mentally unstable from purchasing a firearm. I believe in increased background checks to prevent those who are unstable from purchasing a gun.
