NASHVILLE — The American Conservative Union (ACU) Foundation released its annual scorecard of the Tennessee General Assembly this week showing State Senator Jon Lundberg (R-Bristol) tied for the Senate’s top ranking. Lundberg rated 95 percent, earning him the group’s Award for Conservative Excellence. He shared the top ranking with State Senator Mike Bell (R-Riceville).

“I’m honored to receive this recognition,” said Sen. Lundberg. “I came to Nashville to stand up for fiscal responsibility, limited government, individual liberty, and free enterprise, and I’m proud that my voting record reflects that commitment.”    

The ACU Foundation researched and selected a range of bills reflecting a member’s adherence to defending conservative principles of a free society:  life, liberty and property. The Tennessee General Assembly’s overall conservative score was 76.65 percent, putting the state in contention for the most conservative legislature in the country.
