At the beginning of the 2013 legislative session, Allen served on the following committees:
|Arizona Committee Assignments, 2013|
|• Insurance and Retirement, Vice Chair|
|• Audit, Vice Chair|
Allen's campaign website listed the following issues:
- Excerpt: "Arizona’s government spending, like most other states and the Federal government, has far outpaced normal revenue growth. If not for raising taxes and sweeping money from funds set-aside for other responsibilities, the state would be close to bankrupt."
- Excerpt: "Spending on education has grown over the past 20 years to the highest levels in state history and is the largest single expenditure in the state budget. Yet the testing of students show that outputs are unchanged or worse."
- Foster Care
- Excerpt: "Children in the foster care system have the State standing in for their parents. Most, if not all, come from very sad situations and many have been irreparably harmed. We can do more for them. We must find ways to incentivize our culture toward helping these most vulnerable children. It is too simple to say that all that is needed is more money."
- Illegal Immigration
- Excerpt: "We are a country of immigrants and a state of migrants. We are a welcoming people and culture. But there are some rules; like the family that loves its neighbors but still has a fence around the yard and locks on the doors, because they want to say who comes in and why. It was my bill that would have used the National Guard troops to close the border, but was vetoed by Governor Napolitano."
- Excerpt: "Arizona has been a growth state since WWII, for many reasons including that we have been a state where it is easy to set up shop, find good employees, and move goods and services with ease. In the recent past our government has elevated the amount of regulation and business taxes to deal with problems that mostly do not exist."
