PRIORITY

ISSUES

PASS SENSIBLE GUN LAWS

Unlimited access to military-grade weapons and repealed training requirements have resulted in thousands of preventable deaths in Kansas. Christina will vote for reasonable gun legislation including stronger background check requirements and assault weapons bans.

DEFEND EDUCATION FUNDING

Lawrence and Baldwin City have a tradition of strong public schools and are serviced by three universities: the University of Kansas, Haskell Indian Nations University, and Baker University. Christina will stand strong to stop attacks on K-12 and higher education funding.

PROTECT OUR ENVIRONMENT

Climate change is an existential threat to the people and economy of Kansas. We must act forcefully and immediately to promote the development of renewable energy resources and achieve a 100% clean energy operation by the year 2030.

RESPOND EFFECTIVELY TO COVID-19

Kansas is lucky to have a leader like Gov. Kelly during this crisis. However, the Legislature is doing everything it can to limit her powers to guide our state safely through re-opening. Christina will utilize her public health expertise to provide insight and persuade others in the Legislature to adopt a health-focused, science-based government response.

Refusing to expand Medicaid has cost our state $2 billion, and kept quality health insurance from 150,000 people in the middle of a pandemic. Over 70% of Kansans support expanding access to affordable coverage which will save lives and lower expenses for everyone.

CUT FOOD SALES TAX

Kansas has the second-highest sales tax rate on food in the country. A tax on groceries affects working Kansans the most - that's why Christina will work to cut and eventually eliminate it in the State House.

EXPAND MEDICAID ACCESS

REFORM POLICING SYSTEM

Christina will fight to end qualified immunity, require liability insurance for police officers to price bad cops out of a job, and extend whistleblower protections to ensure that good cops who report abuses of power are not retaliated against.

FIGHT FOR REPRODUCTIVE RIGHTS

Reproductive rights are constantly under attack in the Kansas Legislature, even though a majority of Kansans support abortion access. Christina will never allow anti-choice extremists to control what women and people with uteruses do with their own bodies.

LEGALIZE RECREATIONAL MARIJUANA

Legal recreational marijuana will help block the school-to-prison pipeline, increase tax revenue to fill the upcoming post-COVID budget shortfall, and allow farmers more choices of crops to grow. We should legalize it immediately and release anyone currently imprisoned for its possession.
