On women's issues, Grassia said, "I feel it only right to defer to women on matters that are specific to their gender...I support any individual’s right to honor God as they believe is right, but not to play God to their constituents. I can’t believe that God granted us with free will so that we can impose our will upon others." Additionally, he supports well-funded law enforcement, as well as adequate industry oversight "so that we have clean, safe and healthy air and water for generations of families to come."
