ACUF Ratings Show WV Trending More Conservative – Awards to be Presented in Event Featuring A.G. Sessions

September 13, 2017

ALEXANDRIA, VA – The American Conservative Union Foundation (ACUF) has just released its ratings for the 2017 meeting of the West Virginia Legislature. These ratings, a portion of the comprehensive and nationwide ratings released by the ACUF, are designed to reflect how elected officials view the role of government and are helpful in illustrating how both chambers of the legislature as well as individual members’ prioritize a wide variety of issue areas that directly affect West Virginians.

The ACUF has reviewed each piece of legislation voted on in both the Senate and House of Delegates to produce average scores for each chamber as well as individual scores for each sitting member.

Those members who scored an 80% or higher will be presented an award in Charleston, WV on September 20th. The award presentation will kick off ACUF’s West Virginia On the Rise policy forum which will feature speakers including U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Rep. Alex Mooney (WV-2), WV Attorney General Patrick Morrisey, and numerous other voices in the conservative movement.

West Virginian legislators took pen to paper on various issues during the 2017 legislative session including Second Amendment rights, school choice, abortion, and organized labor. Most notably, they:

The scores in both chambers increased based on last year’s ratings, suggesting that the legislative body is voting in a more conservative fashion. The West Virginia House’s average score increased by 3 percentage points this year – from 63% in 2016 to 66% in 2017 – and the Senate’s score increased by a whopping 14 points – from 54% in 2016 to 68% this year.
