ACU Foundation Releases its 2017 Ratings of Congress
News Release
Thursday, May 03, 2018

ALEXANDRIA, Virginia – The American Conservative Union Foundation (ACUF) released its 47th Annual Federal Ratings of Congress and announced that Rep. John Culberson is among the recipients of ACUF’s Award for Conservative Achievement.

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. Culberson (91% ACU Lifetime) earned 89% for the 2017 session.

“Rep. Culberson has proved again that he is committed to fighting for conservative solutions,” said ACU Chairman Matt Schlapp. “Rep. Culberson should take pride in his 2017 score which reflects his dedication to restoring the proper, limited role of government.”

"I'm honored to receive this award for my commitment to the conservative principles of self-reliance, freedom and limited government," said Rep. Culberson (TX-07). "I believe in letting Texans run Texas, and I will continue working each day to restore our government to the core principles on which our nation was founded. Thank you to the American Conservative Union for this honor."

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
  • and 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.
