Congressman Arrington receives Award for Conservative Excellence

(Press release)

The American Conservative Union Foundation (ACUF) released its 47th Annual Federal Ratings of Congress and announced that Rep. Jodey Arrington is among the recipients of ACUF’s Award for Conservative Excellence.

Each year, ACUF produces an annual scorecard based on the voting records of members in both the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives. All members of Congress are issued a score and awards are presented to those members who score an 80 percent or higher.

Rep. Arrington earned 93% for the 2017 session, his first as a member of Congress.

This session’s scorecard is made up of 25 bills in the U.S. House of Representatives and 21 bills in the U.S. Senate. The bills selected cover a wide range of issues including fiscal and economic, social and cultural, and national security, and are designed to reflect how an individual views the role of government in an individual’s life.

This year some of the key issues ACU Foundation scored include:

·         Confirmation of Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court

·         Repeal of Obamacare

·         Passage of historic tax cuts

·         Defunding of Planned Parenthood

·         Repeal of Dodd-Frank

·         Key presidential nominations to cabinet positions.

ACUF is the sister organization of the American Conservative Union, the nation’s original conservative organization, and has for more than fifty years educated and activated the conservative movement through its ratings programs, policy centers and educational events such as the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), the largest annual gathering of conservatives in the nation.
