STAUNTON, VA – The American Conservative Union has announced via press release on June 5 that Delegate Richard P. “Dickie” Bell (R-Staunton) will receive the Award for Conservative Achievement for his votes during the 2017 General Assembly Session.

This award was given to those legislators that scored a 80%-89% percent rating on the ACU 2017 State Legislative Rating.  Delegate Bell received an 85% rating.  Delegate Bell has a lifetime ACU rating of 93%.

The American Conservative Union ratings intend to reflect how each legislator views the role of government in an individual’s life.  In determining these ratings, they looked for legislators who could be counted on to protect the constitutional right to life, liberty, and property.
