Question Title

* # 1 - The state sends a total of $7.3 billion in education funding directly to local schools – this figure does NOT include federal and local property tax dollars schools receive. This amount averages to over $6,800 per student. The $7.3 billion in state funding can be used for whatever educational purposes the school desires. Do you support increasing, decreasing or holding flat state education funding?

Question Title

* # 2 - A recent analysis found the average prices for Indiana hospitals were three times the Medicare rate and the most expensive among the 25 states that were studied. Hospitals say they invest a portion of their profit back into the local community. Should Indiana do more to prevent hospitals from charging excessive prices for health care services?

Question Title

* # 3 - Do you think a work requirement for Medicaid and Healthy Indiana Plan enrollees (with exemptions for those who are older, have disabilities or are sick, as well as those who are currently in school, job training or serving as a family caretaker) is a fair policy to encourage economic self-sufficiency?

Question Title

* # 4 - Would you support raising the state excise tax on tobacco, and imposing a new excise tax on vaping products?

Question Title

* # 5 - With record-low unemployment, should Indiana focus a majority of its economic development efforts toward attracting and sustaining higher-wage job opportunities instead of simply new jobs?

Question Title

* # 6 - Two of the primary drivers of county jail overcrowding are housing offenders awaiting trial and those unable to pay their bail bond. Do you believe local courts and jails should do more to release offenders if they do not pose a risk of violence or skipping their trials?

Question Title

* I am interested in what you have to say!
