WASHINGTON, D.C. - The American Conservative Union Foundation yesterday
recognized Congressman Jody Hice (GA-10) with its annual “Award for
Conservative Excellence,” given in recognition of his commitment to America’s
foundational principles and the U.S. Constitution.
“I came to Congress to stand up for the advancement of conservative principles, and I’m proud that my voting record reflects that commitment," Hice said. "I’m honored to be recognized by the American Conservative Union Foundation and will continue to champion pro-growth, limited government policies that help ensure we leave this country and Georgia’s 10th District better than we found it for our kids and grandkids.”
“Rep. Jody Hice earns an A-plus grade for his consistently conservative voting record during a time when our country is facing so many critical issues,” ACU Chairman Matt Schlapp said. “It is refreshing to have a Member of Congress who puts the Constitution first, especially when it comes to our First Amendment religious freedoms.”
Founded in 1973, the American Conservative Union Foundation (ACU) has served as a leading organization to advance conservative principles of liberty, personal responsibility, traditional values, and a strong national defense. The ACU’s prestigious award is given annually to Members of Congress based on their adherence to these values. Hice received a 96 percent rating with ACU in 2016 and holds a lifetime record of 98 percent.
