1. How would you implement your top priority?

Answer from Bill Seitz:

Beyond placing a ballot issue to clarify that school funding is a local/legislative task (not a judicial one), the State should tie income tax credits to those whose property tax is high relative to family income; establish a state match for private donations to local districts; allow local districts greater ability to have inflationary growth on locally voted levies; and press for full federal funding of federally mandated special education programs.

Answer from Bob Klug:

First and formost I will work very diligently against any additional "tort reforms", which simply deneis the rights of our citizans to sue in the courts, to be compensated for malpratcise or shoddy workmanship. Secondly, to get rid of "E" check, which does nothing for the enviorment, and amounts to nothing but a hidden tax. Demand an accounting of where $900 million rainey day and $600 millon cigarrette fund went to.
