Issues

Campaign themes

2012

Collins's campaign website listed the following issues:[1]

  • Jobs/Economy/Economic Development
Excerpt: "we need to end job-killing state regulations that inhibit economic growth in our district. There is too much of a “one size fits all” approach to regulations from Denver—we need a strong voice for the OTHER parts of Colorado."
  • 2nd Amendment
Excerpt: "”the right...to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed” does not leave much room for interpretation. I strongly support the Constitutional Carry provision currently being discussed—a “right” where you have to plead your case before a government agency to exercise it is no right at all."
  • Illegal Immigration
Excerpt: "we need to enforce our existing laws vigorously, and if it is ruled Constitutional (which, I believe it is), I would support an AZ style immigration law in Colorado. We should NOT reward illegal behavior by granting in-state tuition to anyone who has entered (or was brought into) the country illegally. They will still be here illegally after graduation, so would still break our laws by taking a job in the US. "
  • Water
Excerpt: "There is currently a ballot initiative that may be in the works that would throw out 150+ years of Colorado water law, and force our water courts to take into account "the common good” when adjudicating water rights. In California, a similar proposal has bankrupted most of the Central Valley of the state and has put MANY long-time family farms out of business, because the "common good" was interpreted to save a 2 inch minnow (the Delta Smelt) from extinction instead of allowing irrigation to some of the most fertile farmland in the nation--causing it to dry up completely."
  • Abortion
Excerpt: "Life begins at conception. Period. The right to life is fundamental to all other rights."
