ALEXANDRIA, VA (January 12, 2022)— As the state’s legislative session kicks off, a number of Kentucky legislators are set to be recognized at CPAC for their conservative voting records based off of a just released analysis from ACUF’s Center for Legislative Accountability. Lawmakers received high marks for combatting Gov. Andy Beshear’s excessive COVID-19 shutdown policies and for their efforts to advance conservative legislation protecting life and expanding school choice.
The Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) will be taking place in Orlando, Florida from February 24-27, 2022. To earn an invitation, a lawmaker must vote with the conservative position at least 80% of the time, as calculated by the American Conservative Union Foundation’s Center for Legislative Accountability.
The following lawmakers received the highest ratings in their respective chambers:
Stephen West (89%)
Wil Schroder (89%)
Paul Hornback (88%)

Matt Castlen (83%)

Among the 53 roll call votes scored by the American Conservative Union Foundation (ACUF) is the legislation to expand school choice (HB 563), efforts to protect life ( SB 9, HB 91), legislation limiting Gov. Beshear’s excessive “State of Emergency” powers (SB 1, HB 1), and the major pension reform package (HB 258).
