Senator Staton Earns Perfect Score, A+ from Americans for Prosperity

 

Americans for Prosperity (AFP), one of Georgia’s most influential conservative grassroots organizations, has awarded Sen. Cecil Staton a perfect score and an A+ Rating on its 2011- 2012 General Assembly Score Card. The scorecard recognizes elected officials on both the state and national level who are dedicated to fulfilling Americans for Prosperity’s core values: economic freedom and limited government. 

“Americans for Prosperity is the gold standard when it comes to promoting economic freedom. It is an enormous honor to receive their highest possible score,” said Sen. Staton. “Georgia has become one of the most fiscally conservative states in the nation and Americans for Prosperity deserves a great deal of credit. They help keep elected officials focused on reducing the size of government and allowing people to keep more of what they earn. That is a recipe for long-term growth for Georgia. I am committed to continuing this approach so that Georgia is rightfully recognized as the best place for businesses and families.”

State legislators are scored on 12 separate pieces of legislation including Zero Based Budgeting (SB 33), Student Scholarships (HB 325), Revenue & Tax Relief Act (HB 386), GA Government Accountability Act (HB 456), the State Charter School Commission (HB 797) and the Charter School Constitutional Amendment (HR 1162), among others. Scores were given a letter grade equivalent between A+ and F.

“Americans For Prosperity Georgia congratulates State Sen. Cecil Staton for his 100 percent rating for the past two years," said Virginia Galloway, AFP Georgia State Director. "This rating reflects a strong stand for the issues that Americans for Prosperity holds dear: economic and educational freedom, smaller and more efficient government, lower taxes, and less regulation. What this rating does not show, but should be noted, is the dedicated leadership Sen. Staton has provided on each of these issues.”

Americans for Prosperity (AFP) is a nationwide organization committed to advancing economic freedom and opportunity through community involvement and education.
