RICHMOND, Va. (NEWSPLEX) -- Delegate Steve Landes has released the results of his annual district survey.

Constituents in the 25th House District were able to complete the survey online of on paper on issues including cutting government spending, creating jobs and improving the economy.

The top issues among the approximately 250 responses Landes got were opposition to the Affordable Care Act and federal government overreach.

"I'm grateful to the constituents of the 25th House District who took the time to complete this 22nd annual legislative survey, helping to provide me insight into the thoughts and opinions of the people I work hard to represent," said Landes.

Of the survey takers, 24 percent say creating jobs and improving the economy should be the top priority of the Virginia House of Delegates, while 21 percent say cutting wasteful government spending should be the priority.

Thirty-two percent also believe cutting government spending is the best way to address budgetary constraints.

Of responders, 78 percent support an independent audit of the Virginia's Medicaid program, and 67 percent support legislation for "direct primary care" contracts.

Sixty-four percent like the idea of requiring a copy of a photo ID in order to vote, and 79 percent support using state funding to research alternative energy sources.

Landes has represented the 25th House District, which covers parts of Albemarle, Augusta and Rockingham counties, for 22 years.
