State Representative Tim Harman (R-Bremen) received an award for conservative excellence from the American Conservative Union Foundation in its 2016 ratings of the Indiana General Assembly.
Harman received one of the highest scores for voting most consistently with the ideals articulated in the U.S. Constitution: limited and transparent government, individual rights and personal responsibility. The foundation researches and selects a range of bills that determine a member’s adherence to conservative principles, and issues a yearly scorecard for all 50 state legislative bodies.
“This distinction reflects my values and the decisions I make during legislative session,” Harman said. “I have always tried to represent my district to the best of my ability.”
According to the foundation, 39 state representatives and 21 state senators in Indiana scored between 90 and 100 percent. This marks the fifth year the group rated the General Assembly.
State Rep. Tim Harman (R-Bremen) represents all of Marshall County and a large portion of Fulton County.
