Issues

Campaign themes

On her 2012 campaign site, Chapman outlines her campaign themes and policy goals:

  • Promote Job Creation: "I am committed to improving our business climate by eliminating the burdensome state regulations and tax environment that stifles job growth. We need to lower the second highest corporate net income tax in the country, make Pennsylvania a Right to Work state to increase worker freedom and privatize state monopolies like the state liquor store system to spur private sector job growth."
  • Enact Reforms to Save Tax Dollars: "I support reforms such as pension and benefit reform for all public employees, ending outdated prevailing wage laws on public construction projects that inflate costs, making sure our children have a strike free education, and instituting real medical malpractice insurance reform to attract the best and brightest physicians to our state."
  • End School Property Taxes: I am supportive of the Property Tax Independence Act... The Property Tax Independence Act will ensure that the state evenly funds all school children regardless of where they live and will eliminate our property taxes thus helping seniors on fixed incomes. It will also eliminate the huge spike in property taxes that are coming due to the pension troubles our state is facing."
