Doug Sposito is one of the four Republican candidates running for the open seat in Legislative District 30 House of Representatives. We asked him some questions about environmental policy.
Do you support allowing some state trust land to be set aside for conservation without payment to the trust?
No, because it’s in the state constitution that the trust will be compensated.
Should the state set fuel-efficiency standards for cars and trucks sold in Arizona?
Should the state increase gasoline taxes to pay for more highway construction?
Should the state require new schools to incorporate renewable-energy features such as solar panels if it will increase construction costs?
Should the state continue to provide tax credits for solar installation?
No, that’s where the state needs to be more honest. If solar and wind were a viable energy alternative it would not need to be subsidized by the government.
Should the state enact environmental rules that are more strict then federal regulations?
