AMERICAN CONSERVATIVE UNION FOUNDATIONS 2016 Ratings of New York

LETTER FROM THE CHAIRMAN

Dear Fellow Conservatives,

We are pleased to present the American Conservative Union Foundations ratings for the 2016 meeting of the New York State Legislature. Like our
Congressional Ratings, our State Ratings reflect how elected officials view the role of government in an individual's life. The New York legislators with the
highest scores voted most consistently with the ideals articulated in the U.S. Constitution: limited and transparent government, individual rights, personal
responsibility, and lasting cultural values.
In 2015, ACU Foundation was proud to make history by being the first organization to rate every single state legislature across the full spectrum of issues,
helping each voter understand how his or her state ranks among the rest.
Ultimately, we are trying to help people understand what conservatism is and how it improves the lives of everyday Americans. Conservatism is the political
philosophy that sovereignty resides in the person. We think that understanding this idea is essential if Americans are to successfully govern themselves again.
Working with our policy centers and fellows, the ACU Foundation engages in deep policy analysis to help create our annual state scorecards. We have enhanced
the vote descriptions this year to show this effort more clearly.
By examining all 50 of our State Ratings, we can see which states have most effectively promoted conservative solutions and which have struggled. Our
ratings also help identify legislators who have courageously fought against liberal majorities. We hope that this guide helps you learn how well, or poorly, your
legislators work to preserve the values we share.

Sincerely,

Matt Schlapp
Chairman
American Conservative Union
