From Bustamante Adams's campaign website:
ACCESS TO HEALTH CARE
My family regularly volunteers at a senior center, and like so many people today, I worry about the health care needs of my aging parents. We need to improve access to health care, particularly for children and seniors.
JOBS AND ECONOMIC RECOVERY
There is nothing more important than getting Nevadans back to work. I have worked for the past several years to create more job opportunities for small businesses. Building our economy to create jobs and stabilizing our housing market by reducing the number of foreclosures are my top priorities. In the Assembly, I will work to make Nevada a transportation, manufacturing and distribution hub of the West. We must also continue to create jobs through road and building projects and renewable energy development.
We need to do more to prepare our students for today's jobs, improve career and technical education opportunities, and help every student reach his or her academic potential. As a legislator, I will focus on ways to recruit, reward, and retain effective teachers and principals, especially where they are needed most.
GOVERNMENT EFFICIENCY AND ACCOUNTABILITY
We cannot afford waste and lack of transparency at any level of government. I will fight for increased transparency of state spending and efficiency in every state agency that our tax dollars are being spent wisely.

Nevada Policy Research Institute
The Nevada Policy Research Institute, a Nevada-based conservative-libertarian think tank, releases a "Legislative Report Card" evaluating members of the Nevada State Legislature on "each lawmaker's voting record on legislation impacting the degree of economic freedom and education reform." Bills determined by the Institute to be of greater significance are weighted accordingly. According to the Institute, "a legislator with a score above 50 is considered to be an ally of economic liberty".
