WASHINGTON – Today, Rep. Virginia Foxx received the American Conservative Union Foundation (ACUF) Award for Conservative Excellence in 2018. ACUF selected several key votes that reflect how lawmakers view the role of government in an individual’s life, including the rollback of numerous harmful Obama-era regulations, cuts to profligate spending, immigration reform, welfare reform, re-instating “net-neutrality” internet regulations and the confirmation of Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

Rep. Foxx stated, “Conserving the principles of individual liberty and limited government that our nation was founded upon guide all my actions as a proud conservative in the U.S. House of Representatives. It is an honor to be recognized for this commitment by the ACUF, and I look forward to maintaining my strong conservative record in 2019.”
