WASHINGTON, DC . . .  Rep. Ralph Hall (TX-04) was again honored by the American Conservative Union, receiving their American Conservative Union Ratings Award for 2011.

“I am honored to receive the American Conservative Union’s award, and am proud to hold the second highest rating in Texas with a score of 95.83%,” Hall stated. “My constituents of the 4th District of Texas believe in reining in out-of-control federal spending and balancing America’s budget.
