Award Recognizes Commitment to America's Core Principles with Rating of 91 Percent
WASHINGTON – Congresswoman Renee Ellmers released the following statement this afternoon after receiving the American Conservative Union's 2012 Award for the 112th Congress:
"I'm honored that the American Conservative Union has recognized my work in Congress and the determination to protect the free enterprise system, individual liberty, and the American values that makes our nation strong. I will continue to fight for common sense policies that will put the American people back to work, increase energy production, remove costly regulations that are crippling our small businesses, and balance our budget so that we can help families across the country. I am very grateful for this award and thank the ACU for the work they are doing to fight for conservative values and recognize the true champions of these policies in Congress."
