On Education: Become the most school-choice friendly state in the nation

For some families, that means having the chance to send their child to a charter, magnet or private school, or to homeschool them. School choice is a spectrum, and last year, we recognized we had to first improve our existing options--charter schools and the Alabama Accountability Act. Now, our next step is to provide our parents, beginning with those most in need, education savings accounts, which will further us on our journey to become the most school-choice friendly state in the nation.

On Families & Children: Early onset medical care necessary for mothers and children

To foster a better culture of life, we must also do more to support Alabama families, and early onset medical care is necessary for both mothers and children. That is why I am proud to support a pilot program that will start hosting checkups for pregnant women at nine county health departments in areas of need. Folks, there is nothing more important than our Alabama families, and we must come together to find common ground on meaningful ways to support them.

On Government Reform: Supports legislation that prohibits ballot harvesting

We all agree in protecting the integrity of our elections in Alabama. That is why I am proud to support legislation that prohibits ballot harvesting in our state. We would put a stop to any manipulation of our elections by closing loopholes that allow unaccountable, paid political operatives to pressure folks through the absentee voting process. This year, we have a new bill to outlaw ballot harvesting that also protects folks who truly need assistance in having their voices be heard.
