1. In 2009, Delegate Robert Marshall (R) introduced bill HB1656, which would have allowed faculty members with concealed handgun permits to carry concealed handguns on state university campuses. Would you favor introducing similar legislation in the future that would permit professors with appropriate permits to carry concealed handguns on college and university campuses in Virginia?

3. Delegate Tim Hugo (R) has introduced legislation (HB 2053) proposing to increase the required number of in-state undergraduate students at state universities and colleges in Virginia to 75% of the student body. Currently the University of Virginia maintains a ratio of approximately 71% in-state undergraduate students to 29% out-of-state. Do you support legislation that would increase the percentage of in-state undergraduate students while decreasing the number of out-of-state students at state universities and colleges in Virginia?

4. There is increasing concern for the quality of academic life at the University due to size and budget issues. Would you prefer increasing tuition or increasing enrollment as the best way to help mitigate some of the funding issues?
5. Delegate William H. Cleaveland (R) has introduced a bill (HB1572) that stipulates that any enrolled cadet in good standing in any Reserve Officers Training Corps (ROTC) unit or any current member of a Reserve Component of the United States Armed Forces attending any public institution of higher education shall pay tuition in an amount no more than the institution's in-state tuition rate. Would you support legislation that allows cadets to receive these benefits?

6. Senator Charles J. Colgan (D) has introduced a six-year capital outlay plan in Senate Bill 1371. If the legislation is approved, the state of Virginia would provide funds for a renovation of New Cabell Hall. Would you support legislation that would permit a renovation of New Cabell Hall?

7. A new bill (HB2490) introduced by Delegate Miller (R) would require the chief law-enforcement officer of a public or private institution of higher education to report the death or an alleged rape of any person on campus property to the local law-enforcement agency of the locality in which the institution is located. The local law-enforcement agency would assume responsibility for leading the investigation, with cooperation from the institution of higher education. Do you agree with requiring campus police forces to turn over cases involving murder and rape to city and county police forces?

8. State Senator Don McEachin introduced a bill (SB 747) which Prohibits discrimination in state employment based on race, color, religion, national origin, sex, pregnancy, childbirth or related medical conditions, age, marital status, disability, sexual orientation, or status as a special disabled veteran or other veteran covered by the Vietnam Era Veterans Readjustment Assistance Act of 1974, as amended. This adds in the phrase about sexual orientation which was not previously a condition for discrimination. Do you believe that adding sexual orientation to the list of non-discriminated groups in state employ is a good thing?
