At the beginning of the 2013 legislative session, Steele served on the following committees:
Steele's campaign website listed the following issues:
- My top priority is creating higher paying jobs in a sustainable economy.
- Excerpt: "Most of us still believe in the American dream. We believe that if you work hard, you can raise a family, own a home, send your kids to college, and set aside money for retirement. That dream has faded for Arizonans. Hard work no longer brings the assurance of success it once did. There is a need for a renewal of fairness and balance."
- Investing in education gives us a competitive edge that is so critical to our future.
- Excerpt: "Arizona’s public education system needs to become one of the best in the nation to ensure Arizona’s place in the world economy. The education of our children is one of the most important issues facing Arizona. However, instead of making education a top priority, the current out of balance legislature has focused on allowing guns on school campuses and creating Bible classes, while banning ethnic studies."
- Preserving Arizona’s spectacular beauty is not only an inherent part of our tradition, it is critical for our economy.
- Excerpt: "Many of our hard-won environmental protections have been and continue to be destroyed. We must protect our precious water resources and help make Arizona a world leader in renewable energy and sustainability."
- Arizonans deserve access to affordable health care including mental health and reproductive health services.
- Excerpt: "Our current Republican-controlled legislature has systematically dismantled access to affordable health care and declared war on women’s health, endangering their lives and setting the quality of health care back to the 1950s."
