STATEHOUSE (Sept. 12, 2016) – State Rep. Dave Ober (R-Albion) received an award for conservative excellence from the American Conservative Union Foundation in its 2016 ratings of the Indiana General Assembly.

Ober 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.

“I’m proud to again be counted among the most conservative members of the Indiana legislature,” Ober said. “I will continue to represent District 82 to the best of my ability by supporting conservative ideals and policies.”

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.
