Support Conservation and the Environment -- As an avid hunter and fisherman, I appreciate the beauty of our outdoors, and I understand the need to preserve our natural resources for both today and tomorrow. I will support legislation, including funding of the Conservation Land Bank, which protects our state's forests, streams, and lakes. I will also support efforts including tax incentives to encourage private landowners to place conservation easements on their properties.

Protect Home Rule -- In recent years, our state government in Columbia has taken over decisions that have historically been made by local governments. I believe that in many cases, local government is best at making decisions affecting its particular locale. Simply put, what might be good for Santee might not be good for Aiken. I will support measures to protect Home Rule.
