Children of divorced, separated, or unmarried parents overwhelmingly find themselves in situations where they are placed into the sole physical custody of one parent. Healthy children require the love and attention of both parents in order to become healthy and productive adults. Steve will author legislation establishing a presumption of joint physical custody in Minnesota's family law statutes. This will ensure that more children are able to spend equal time with both parents.
Marriage is a time-tested and sacred institution between one man and one woman. Steve firmly believes that Minnesotans should be given the opportunity to vote upon the constitutional definition of marriage for our state.
