The Mastriano Plan
RESTORE FREEDOM. PROTECT FAMILIES. REVIVE THE ECONOMY.
★ PERSONAL FREEDOM
On day one, Doug Mastriano will put an end to Wolf's mask mandates, vaccine mandates, and his draconian covid restrictions. Mastriano will reject unconstitutional edicts that come down from the CDC and the Biden administration, and he'll expand access to effective covid therapies.
★ ELECTION INTEGRITY
To keep our elections free and fair, Mastriano will appoint a Secretary of State who will secure our elections from fraud. He'll partner with the legislature to eliminate "no-excuse" mail-in voting, get rid of drop boxes, and pass universal voter ID.
★ SECOND AMENDMENT
Mastriano will make Pennsylvania a "2nd Amendment Sanctuary," where our rights will be protected against misguided federal bureaucrats that want to disarm law-abiding citizens. Mastriano will work with the legislature to make PA a safe, constitutional carry state.
★ RIGHT TO LIFE
To protect the right to life, Mastriano will sign the Heartbeat bill into law, end funding to Planned Parenthood, and expand counseling for adoption services.
★ SAFE and SECURE COMMUNITIES
Doug Mastriano believes government's top job is to provide for the safety of its citizens. As governor, he'll hold elected officials accountable for enforcing the law and prosecuting crime. If they won't do their jobs, Mastriano will remove them.
Mastriano will support law enforcement by ensuring they have adequate funding. He'll keep violent criminals behind bars where they belong and he'll strengthen penalties for repeat offenders and those convicted of violent crime. He'll also support funding for additional prosecutors in high-crime areas.
Mastriano will clean up PA's worst neighborhoods and he won't hesitate to assist local law enforcement with State Police and National Guard to protect law-abiding citizens and businesses during periods of mass unrest and riots.
★ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION and SANCTUARY CITIES
With Mastriano as Governor, Pennsylvania will never be a sanctuary state for Biden's illegal immigrants, and he'll hold Pennsylvania's elected officials accountable for cracking down on the fentanyl being snuck across our southern border, which is taking the lives of 15 Pennsylvanians each and every day.
He'll send immediate notice to the Federal Government informing that Pennsylvania will no longer receive chartered flights or busses with illegal immigrant passengers. He'll ban the use of public benefits for illegal immigrants and sign legislation that strengthens and expands the "E-Verify" law to ensure employers cannot hire illegal immigrants.
Mastriano will also place a fee on the millions of dollars in remittances that are sent out of state by non-citizens and use the revenue to provide tax relief for legal citizens.
★ PARENTAL RIGHTS and SCHOOL CURRICULUM
Doug Mastriano believes parents have a fundamental right to know and control what their children are learning in school. For that reason, Mastriano will strengthen and enforce statewide curriculum transparency requirements, and work with the legislature to establish a universal "Parental Rights" statute in the law.
Mastriano believes schools should teach children how to think, not what to think. On day one, Mastriano will place an immediate ban on Critical Race and Gender Theory Studies in Pennsylvania schools.
★ SCHOOL SAFETY and WOMEN'S SPORTS
On day one, Mastriano will place an immediate ban on biological males in girls' locker rooms and restrooms. On the same day, Mastriano will ban biological males from competing in girls' sports.
★ SCHOOL CHOICE
Doug Mastriano believes every Pennsylvania child is entitled to a top-notch education and that, when schools compete, it promotes excellence. While he'll make sure public schools are well-funded, he'll also fight like hell to provide them the competition that will make them great. Mastriano will work with the legislature to finally bring school choice to Pennsylvania families, so that no child is trapped in a failing school ever again.
★ UNSHACKLE OUR ENERGY SECTOR
On day one, Mastriano will pull Pennsylvania out of Tom Wolf's disastrous "Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative." He'll encourage investments in the natural gas and coal industries, and he'll lift Tom Wolf's unreasonable regulations, taxes, and fees on these industries. Under Mastriano, Pennsylvania will drill and mine like it should, and Pennsylvania will prosper.
★ LOWER THE TAX BURDEN
Mastriano believes the property tax on homeowners is an unfair burden and he'll immediately establish a Property Tax Elimination Taskforce to find a way to get this burden off of hardworking Pennsylvania homeowners. Mastriano will work with the legislature to slash the gas tax and lower the corporate net income tax rate to attract business to the commonwealth.
★ SLASH REGULATIONS and SPEED UP PERMITS
In his first hundred days, Mastriano intends to cut Pennsylvania's massive list of regulations by at least 55,000. He'll work with the legislature to increase transparency in the permitting process and reduce the timeline for approvals.
★ BUDGET and FISCAL RESPONSIBILITY
Working with the Auditor General and State Treasurer, Mastriano will audit the previous five year's budgets to identify areas of waste and abuse. He'll propose a 2023 budget that keeps reckless spending in check.
★ CLEAN UP THE HARRISBURG SWAMP
Mastriano's administration will prohibit public officials from accepting gifts from lobbyists and special interest groups. He'll work with the legislature to create law that will eliminate the "revolving door" of lobbyists who lobby from the inside, and prevent political consultants from registering as lobbyists.
