1.  What are your top priorities for action by the General Assembly this year?
Choose up to three.
2.  In 2018, the General Assembly established the first ever dedicated source of capital funding for Metro. To do this, however, more than $100M per year was diverted from other regional transportation priorities. Would you support increasing the regional hotel tax from 2% to 3% and the real estate transfer tax from 15¢ to 20¢ per $100 of assessed value to fill that funding gap?
3.  Should Virginia pass a "red flag" law?  This is a gun violence prevention approach that allows law enforcement or a family member to petition a state court to order the temporary removal of firearms from a person who may present a danger to others or themselves.  
4.  There are multiple proposals to expand gambling/gaming in Virginia. These proposals differ in scope and how any tax revenue would be distributed. In general:
A.  Do you support making it legal to allow betting on professional sports teams? 
B.  Do you support authorizing local governments, by public referendum, to establish casinos? Only a limited number would be allowed state-wide.
5.  Based on your current knowledge, should the General Assembly pass the incentive package negotiated by the Governor to bring Amazon to Northern Virginia?
6.  State laws across the country are changing with regard to marijuana. Last year, Virginia passed a law allowing the medical use of cannabidiol, which is a non-psychoactive (i.e., doesn't get you high) oil made from marijuana. What long-term approaches do you support here in Virginia
Keep Virginia's laws the way they are.
Decriminalize possession of small amounts of marijuana (subject to a monetary penalty rather than criminal prosecution).
Expand medical use to all forms of marijuana.
Allow recreational use of marijuana and regulate it similar to alcohol.
Allow recreational use of marijuana with minimal government oversight.
7.  The current minimum wage in Virginia is the federal minimum of $7.25, last increased in 2009. The poverty level for a family of four is slightly more than $12 per hour working full time. Would you support phasing in a higher minimum wage in Virginia?
8.  The General Assembly changed the law in 2013 to require a photo ID to vote. Prior to that, non-photo forms of ID could be used, or the voter could sign an affidavit. Do you think that Virginia should:
9.  As any VT or JMU parent knows, I-81 is congested and dangerous. However, fixing I-81 will be expensive -- estimated at $2.1 billion. Would you support the use of tolls to make improvements?
