Current Political Issues

The Political Guide provides information on current political issues and the position of each candidate or representative on these issues. This includes recent laws and politically hot issues of the day as well as past issues. The links below are to pages that provide a history and background for each of these issues. The intention is that a representative's viewpoint on any given issues or legislation is given in their profile and the reader can then come to these pages to find information on those issues. Some of these issues overlap. For example, if the representaive was particularly vocal on one piece of legislation, a separate writeup is addressed under their profile for that legislation, but the legislation is still addressed in the context of their position on the bigger issue.
