Additional questions include Vermont Yankee, use of cell phones while driving, decriminalization of marijuana, and a three-year moratorium on the construction of wind turbines.
Other questions on the survey are related to expanding the bottle deposit law, increasing the gas tax for roads and bridges, sugar sweetened beverages, the use of tasers, and alternatives for non-violent offenders.
