Entry Description
STATEHOUSE (Dec. 7, 2012) — The American Conservative Union (ACU) named State Sen. Jim Buck (R-Kokomo) a “Defender of Liberty” in its 2012 State Legislative Ratings. He is one of seven Indiana state senators to receive this recognition.

The honor is given to members of state legislatures who score 100 percent on the organization’s grading system. Rankings are determined by lawmakers’ votes on key conservative issues. For the Indiana General Assembly, some of those issues included school choice, the statewide smoking ban and legislation to stop the federal health-care mandate.

“I am grateful for the opportunity to serve as a conservative voice for the people of North Central Indiana,” Buck said. “As we move forward I will continue to fight for fiscally responsible spending and employer-friendly, pro-growth policies that benefit all Hoosiers.”  

The ACU first began rating members of Congress in 1971. Today, it is considered the most important conservative measuring stick in American politics. To see a full list of rankings, go to http://conservative.org/legislative-ratings.
