The award from the nation’s largest conservative organization is based on a selection of 25 votes, including votes cast in opposition of federal pay increases, federal funding of abortions, firearm reporting requirements, and the Administration’s efforts to reduce the production of domestic energy.
“The ACU Conservative Award is a reflection of Representative Paul Broun’s consistent support of conservative principles on a wide range of issues of concern to grassroots conservatives in 2011,” said ACU Chairman Al Cardenas. “At a time when the fundamental principles of the American system of government are being challenged, Representative Broun stands with those who are trying to preserve those principles.”
Considered the gold standard of lawmaker ratings, the award is only given to members of the House and Senate who scored 80 percent or higher in the ACU’s ratings of Congress. Congressman Broun earned a 96 percent rating for votes scored in 2011 and has a distinguished 99 percent lifetime rating in Congress.
