STATEHOUSE (Sept. 23, 2021) – The American Conservative Union Foundation recently recognized State Rep. Jeff Thompson (R-Lizton) for his support of legislation that protects the sanctity of life, cuts red tape and moves Indiana in the right direction.
“Over the last decade, Indiana has been on a roll,” Thompson said. “Our conservative policies have put us in an enviable position, helping us attract jobs and individuals from surrounding states looking for a new place to call home. I greatly appreciate that our efforts are being recognized, and I will continue supporting legislation that maintains Indiana’s momentum. “
Thompson’s 2020 voting record earned him the Conservative Achievement, which the American Conservative Union Foundation said is because he “voted consistently with the ideals articulated in the U.S. Constitution: limited and transparent government, individual rights, personal responsibility and lasting cultural values.” He supported policies like a law protecting the sanctity of life, ensuring pregnant women can bury or cremate the remains of their unborn child after an abortion. Thompson also voted in favor of a law cutting unnecessary red tape, allowing Indiana Farm Bureau to offer more affordable health benefits to its members and their families, and another law allowing qualified emergency service providers, like EMTs, to work across state lines without having to obtain a state-specific license.
The American Conservative Union Foundation also ranked the Indiana General Assembly as one of the top 10 conservative legislatures in the country. Visit conservative.org/ratings to see all the rankings.
