Collins has defended Big Oil companies like Shell and Occidental Petroleum against communities impacted by fossil fuel extraction and the effects of climate change. He has also refused to say whether the landmark Brown v. Board of Education ruling was correctly decided, and has filed briefs supporting the restriction of access to contraceptives through health insurance.
