10. A.2042-B Kavanagh: The Conservative Party certainly encourages every citizen to be involved in the election process, however, allowing state agencies to gather data on 16 and 17 year olds to pre-register them to vote should not be the venue/means to encourage voting.
11. A.2941 – Wright: Our Constitution currently provides that a police officer must have a just and reasonable cause to stop individuals. This bill seeks to prevent police officers from doing their job by creating onerous regulations; therefore, the Conservative Party is opposed to this bill.
