An article put out on Mick Mulvaney’s website discusses his views on energy. He takes a conservative approach by advocating improving current technologies to burn cleaner, citing coal as an example. He further expresses doubt about the readiness in new technology such as solar and wind power, saying “these technologies offer tremendous opportunities for the future. However, I have never seen, nor read, nor heard any reputable expert or organization contend that any of the new technologies will be readily and economically available within the necessary timeline.”
Mick Mulvaney: South Carolina House.
http://www.time.com/time/specials/packages/article/0,28804,1958119_1958112_1958124,00.html. February 1, 2010.
An article in Time magazine presents Mulvaney as one of “10 more Scott Brown,” referencing his challenge to incumbent John Spratt. Mulvaney believes he can defeat Spratt on the issue of what his campaign website calls the "Obama's health care takeover." Mulvaney is a staunch opponent of the bill on the basis that it is inefficient and wasteful government spending.
Proposal to aid in stopping smoking
http://chronicle.augusta.com/news/metro/2010-07-14/proposal-aid-stopping-smoking. July 14, 2010. A bill put forth in the Senate, S. 1378, to require health insurance providers to cover nicotine replacement therapies. The bill died at the end of may when Mulvaney and two other republican senators tried to amend it to include a challenge of President Obama's health care reform. According to an article in the Augusta Times, the sponsor of the bill plans to push his proposal again when lawmakers return to the S.C. Statehouse the following year.
House, Senate override cigarette tax veto
http://www.wistv.com/Global/story.asp?S=12476075. May 13, 2010.
An article posted on wistv.com cited Mulvaney on his stance of the South Carolina state Senate overturning of Governor Sanford’s recent veto of a cigarette tax increase. He opposes the Senate’s actions, arguing the veto should stay in place and calling the cigarette tax increase a “cop-out” to tax reform. He continued, “We're ignoring the big opportunities because this is politically sellable… This is something that we can do."
Mulvaney is recorded as having voted in support of a bill, H. 3355, that would require a physician to perform a pre-abortion ultrasound on all women seeking an abortion. The bill passed the Senate on May 15, 2007 and was signed by the Governor on May 14, 2008. The bill requires the woman to sign a form stating that she has viewed the ultrasound images and has been informed of the probable gestational age of the unborn fetus.
