– Rep. Craig Staats (R-Bucks) was presented with the Institute for Legislative Analysis (ILA) “Charlie Gerow Award: Defender of Limited Government.”
The award is based upon Staats’ voting record in the Pennsylvania General Assembly and is a recognition of his consistent work in standing up for conservative and limited government principles.
Representatives across the country earn this award by showing consistency in upholding the limited government principles outlined by the U.S. Constitution. The ILA analyzes each member’s voting record and gives each member a score based on that record. Awards are then given to those who have the best scores.
“I am incredibly honored to receive this award from ILA, recognizing me as a Defender of Limited Government,” said Staats. “Since being elected I have always been steadfast in my support for legislation that limits government overreach into all aspects of our society. I have always believed a limited government is the best kind of government, and I will continue to support legislation that is committed to that ideal as long as I am in Harrisburg.”
