  • "Federal funds that are made available to the State should not have restrictions on how the State decides to spend that money. The States are better equipped to know where that money should be spent within the State to maximize the use of the federal funds." http://howardknepperforsenate.com/agenda/education/ (howardknepperforsenate.com)

  • "Immigrants that are now in this country should have the opportunity to stay in this country if they came in illegally, register with the US government, pay back taxes, pay a reasonable fine and after 5 years if they have shown responsibility and complied with the above, they should be able to apply for citizenship. Throwing immigrants out of the country, uprooting their lives and their children's lives is not only counterproductive, it is not humane, not logical. If they do not comply, then they should be deported." http://votesmart.org/public-statement/1103236/issue-position-immigration (votesmart.org)

  • "Social security should never be privatized or threatened. President Roosevelt implemented social security for a reason and it was to protect people in their retirement that may not have been as fortunate as others. It must remain fully funded at whatever cost is necessary." http://howardknepperforsenate.com/agenda/social-security/ (howardknepperforsenate.com)
