Carrie Heath

Party: Democrat

Office: PA House ( District: 68 )

I come from a family with a long history of farming, so it is no surprise that many of my ancestors were members of The Grange. Specifically, the Middle Ridge Grange (#385) of Delmar Township, where my great-grandmother and great-grandfather joined fellow Grangers for meetings, socials and policy discussions.

What is your view on Climate Change?

Additional Comments: Human activity has clearly impacted our natural world. We should pay attention to the studies from our scientists and even the warnings from our military about the impacts climate change will have if left unchecked.
State and National

Regarding gun laws, what generally do you support from the choices below?

Additional Comments: I am a responsible gun owner who supports the Second Amendment. Like the vast majority of Americans, I support universal background checks. The restrictions regarding individuals with mental health issues that were rolled back this past year need to be put back in place. People who have been convicted of domestic abuse should lose their guns, and people with outstanding Protection From Abuse orders should have to leave their guns with the state police or a similar agency until the PFA is no longer in effect. We should look into having school resource officers, but also need to increase the mental health services for young people who are struggling. And we need to allow the CDC to study gun violence in the US, so that we can figure out what will work to end the problem.
State and National

How should marijuana be regulated?

Additional Comments: I support medical use of marijuana, and believe that its use can be extended to more medical conditions than are currently listed for legal use in Pennsylvania with proper study and precautions in place. Although I am not in favor of full legalization for marijuana, I do believe that marijuana possession for personal use should be decriminalized.
State and National

Should the drawing of district lines be done by an independent system instead of state legislators?

Additional Comments: I support HB 722, the Fair Districts bill. We need to take the drawing of the state’s congressional districts out of the hands of politicians and put it into the citizens’ hands. I support Fair Districts in their push to create an independent, bipartisan commission to redraw our districts. “Voters should select their representatives, not the other way around.” No political party should be able to change the rules or the map. If you cannot win in a fair fight, step out of the ring.
