Issues

Campaign themes

Nguyen's website highlights the following campaign themes:[1]

Creating Jobs

  • Excerpt:"Steve will work hard to reduce burdensome regulations, cut taxes and help businesses keep their doors open and their employees on the job."

Illegal Immigration

  • Excerpt:"Steve will vote to require businesses to verify the immigration status of their employees and fine those that intentionally hire illegal workers. He’ll also support an English-only Amendment to the State Constitution so that all government communication is conducted in English alone."

Public Education

  • Excerpt:"Steve will support more local control, so that local parents, teachers and principals can make the decisions that affect our children’s education, not bureaucrats in Austin. Steve will vote to curb and eliminate unfunded state mandates and supports reforms that would allow local schools to permanently expel the most unruly students – because every child deserves a chance at a great education and too often just a few out-of-control students ruin the experience for everyone else."

Paying off Government Debt

  • Excerpt:"Steve will vote to cap government spending and aggressively pay down government debt. He believes our top priority should be paying off debt owed to foreign countries, especially communist China."
