Cook Earns 100 Percent Conservative Voting Rating
HARRISBURG – Rep. Bud Cook (R-Washington/Fayette) was recently recognized with the American Conservative Union Foundation’s (ACUF) Conservative Excellence Award.

Out of 253 Pennsylvania lawmakers, Cook is among a select group of only 17 who received a 100 percent rating for voting most consistently with the ideals articulated in the U.S. Constitution, limited government, personal responsibility and lasting cultural values.

“If there is one thing that I hope my bosses in the 49th Legislative District remember about my first term in office, it’s that Bud Cook is a frontline protector of individual rights, economic freedom and preventing government from intruding on our most personal decisions,” said Cook. “Whether it’s reining in excessive spending to allow the people of Pennsylvania to keep more of their hard-earned money, protecting our right to bear arms, holding the line against job-killing tax increases and regulations, or any other decision impacting our everyday lives, the obvious and only choice should always be liberty.”

In compiling this annual ranking of Pennsylvania lawmakers, the ACUF researched and selected a range of bills before the Pennsylvania General Assembly to determine a member’s adherence to conservative principles.

Bills chosen for selection focused on President Ronald Reagan’s philosophy of the “three-legged stool”: 1) fiscal and economic: taxes, budgets, regulation, spending, health care and property; 2) social and cultural: Second Amendment, religion, life, welfare and education; and 3) government integrity: voting, individual liberty, privacy and transparency.

This wide range of issues is designed to give citizens an accurate assessment that conveys which of Pennsylvania’s elected leaders best defend the principles of a free society: Life, Liberty and Property. The ACU Foundation is the only organization to score more than 8,000 elected officials each year, including lawmakers from all 50 states and Congress. All ratings can be viewed at
