Ninety-one Florida state lawmakers have been invited to the 2021 Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) to receive awards for conservative voting records. The annual conference is the largest, most influential gathering of conservatives in the world and, for the first time in its history, will take place outside of the DC area. CPAC 2021 will be held at the Hyatt Regency in Orlando, Florida, February 25-28.

“Moving CPAC 2021 to the Sunshine State is a welcome proposition thanks to the strong leadership of Governor DeSantis and conservative champions in the legislature,” said ACU Chairman Matt Schlapp. “We relish the opportunity to recognize and encourage these outstanding lawmakers at CPAC as they ring in a new session of the legislature.”
The Florida Legislature perennially ranks as one of the most conservative legislatures in the country in ACUF’s rankings of the states. During the 2020 session, Florida lawmakers improved their overall conservative score from 70% to 75%. With 91 awardees, the legislature matched its previous number of lawmakers who qualified for ACUF awards.
ACUF’s Ratings of Congress and Ratings of the States are initiatives of ACUF’s Center for Legislative Accountability (CLA). These ratings are designed to reflect how over 8,000 elected officials across the nation view the role of government while illustrating the differences between chambers of the legislature and revealing lawmakers’ positions on a wide variety of issues that directly affect citizens.
ACU Foundation reviewed each piece of legislation voted on in both chambers of the legislature to produce average scores of each chamber as well as individual scores for each sitting member.
