ACU aims to help voters hold their elected officials responsible by rating all 50 state legislatures. ACU researches and selects a wide range of bills that reflect a member’s adherence to conservative principles. We select bills that focus on former President Ronald Reagan’s philosophy of the “three-legged stool”: 1) economic: taxes, budgets, regulation, spending, healthcare, and property; 2) social and cultural: 2nd Amendment, religious freedom, life, welfare, and education; and 3) government integrity: voting, individual liberty, privacy, and transparency. Legislators who score above 80% in each state receive awards for their commitment to conservative principles. As President Ronald Reagan stated, “The person who agrees with you 80% of the time is an ally.”
