District 24 Constituent Survey
Dear District 24 Voter;

It been just about six months since you elected me to the General Assembly as your Representative, and our State is facing some of our toughest challenges in years. From taxes to jobs to education, I take seriously my promise to make Rhode Island a better place to live, work and raise a family. As a life-long Rhode Islander and a new parent myself, I want to help craft solutions that meet the needs of District voters. So long after the votes were counted, I’ve made it a point to continue to talk to our neighbors to hear your concerns and get your advice.

This survey is another way to hear from you, the District 24 voter, about the issues we’ll face at the General Assembly in the coming weeks. Please take the time to answer the questions and provide your input. Please feel free to pass the survey along to any District 24 voter, or let me know if you (or someone you know) would prefer a paper copy. And you can always contact me personally at http://www.ShanleyforWarwick.com or by phone at 401.440.3493.
Thank you and I look forward to hearing from you!

Sincerely,
Evan Shanley

1. Rhode Island leaders have been promising to reduce or eliminate the car tax for years. Speaker Mattiello has proposed to gradually eliminate the car tax over five to six years, but we’re facing a budget deficit of almost $100 million. Do you support elimination of the car tax over the next few years?
Strongly Oppose
Strongly Support
2. Experts confirm that student debt is crushing young families and inhibiting economic development. It’s almost impossible to buy a home right out of college. Governor Raimondo has proposed a “free tuition” program, but what about students at private colleges and universities, or those who already have huge debt? And shouldn’t debt relief be limited to students who pay their own way, make a home in Rhode Island, and earn help by doing well in school. I’ve introduced a bill, HB 5889, that would provide modest debt relief to students who return to Rhode Island after graduation, who are current on their student loans, and who earn less than $60,000. Do you support providing some debt relief to these Rhode Islanders?
Strongly Oppose
Strongly Support
3. With budget deficits looming, several states, including Massachusetts, have turned to marijuana legalization to generate tax revenue and economic development. If regulators can provide meaningful assurances that dispensaries will be managed safely, do you support legalization of marijuana?
Strongly Oppose
Strongly Support
4. Few people are aware that when we surf the internet, our personal information is collected, stored, and even sold without us ever knowing. I’ve introduced legislation, HB 6087, the Right to Know Act, that would require commercial websites and internet providers to get your permission prior to collecting and selling your browsing history and personal data. Do you support this legislation?
Srtongly Oppose
Strongly Support
5. President Trump has vowed to appoint judges who will limit or eliminate completely a woman’s right to make her own health care decisions by overruling the Supreme Court decision in Roe v. Wade. I believe that government should stay out of these decisions, and that a politician’s personal religious views should not be imposed legislatively. Do you support legislation that would codify Roe v. Wade into existing Rhode Island law?
Strongly Oppose
Strongly Support
6. While many Rhode Island employers understand that forcing an employee to come to work sick is bad for business, others, including large employers in health care, restaurants, and other service industries, fail to provide even a few paid sick days. Do you support legislation that would allow long term employees to earn sick days based on the number of hours they work, as they do in Massachusetts and Connecticut?
Strongly Oppose
Strongly Support
7. It used to be that the minimum wage was what teenagers earned working after school, but now thousands of Rhode Island families rely to some extent on minimum wage jobs. Our minimum wage is well below our neighbors in Connecticut and Massachusetts. Do you support raising the minimum wage from $9.60 to $10.50 over the next year?
Strongly Oppose
Strongly Support
8. Are there other issues or concerns you’d like the General Assembly to address this session? Please comment below.
