Small's campaign website highlights the following issues:
Invest in our children and young adults by restoring state funding for education
- Excerpt: "Ending the breaks and having corporations pay a fair share of taxes nets enough revenue to fully restore education funding for K-12 and higher education. Enacting a Marcellus Shale gas severance tax of at least 5% as the drillers already pay in states like Texas and West Virginia will help funding as well."
End unfair local property tax increases and school program cuts
- Excerpt: "Linda will fight for a fair education funding formula so that property taxes can be cut while still properly funding schools."
Unleash the power of PA workers to create a strong economy with good jobs
- Excerpt: "Linda will stop legislative attacks on unions. In states with strong unions, wages are higher for both union and non-union workers."
Let small businesses compete and create jobs
- Excerpt: "Linda will fight for a fair tax system which will level the playing field for small businesses and fight against corporate giveaways that make it impossible for small businesses to compete."
Act on global warming science and create a strong new 21st century economy
- Excerpt: "Linda will fight for our children and insist on a PA Climate Action Plan with clear objectives to transform our economy with renewable energy. We can rise to the challenge and make the biggest economic transformation since…, well, since we adopted fossil fuels in the first place. Our children and grandchildren are depending on us!"
