Henry Nielson (Independent)
Candidate Refused to Complete the Survey.

John Maddox (Republican)
Oppose
I do support term limits, however I am concerned that these extremely restrictive term limits place too much power with lobbyists and the judiciary and limits the will of the people. I would support term limits of 10 years for the House and 12 years for the Senate.
9. Civil Liberties: Amending the Arkansas Civil Rights Act of 1993 to add sexual orientation and gender identity to the list of protected classes.

Henry Nielson (Independent)
Candidate Refused to Complete the Survey.

John Maddox (Republican)
Oppose
I oppose Obamacare and I oppose the private option in it's current form. I do look forward to the recommendations of the Governor's Health Care Task Force. It is my hope that the state will reform the entire Medicaid system and incentivize people to work and not be dependent on the government.
11. Lottery: Requiring the Arkansas Scholarship Lottery to increase the percentage of proceeds allocated for scholarships to a minimum of 25%.
