Conservative Coalition presents award to Hegar

The Texas Conservative Coalition (TCC) announces that State Sen. Glenn Hegar (R-Katy) has been named as a recipient of the organization’s “Courageous Conservative” award, which is given in recognition of legislators’ efforts to advance, support and vote for conservative policy positions in the 82nd Texas Legislature.

To receive the “Courageous Conservative” award, a member must have an average score of 85 percent on the TCC Senate scorecard.

Sen. Hegar was recognized by the Texas Conservative Coalition as one of the five most conservative members of the Texas Senate.

“Since first being elected to the Legislature, I have pledged to my constituents to always be a strong conservative voice fighting on behalf of the values of less government, lower taxes, and more personal freedom,” Sen. Hegar said.

The Texas Conservative Coalition, the conservative caucus of the Texas Legislature, operates under four guiding principles: limited government, individual liberty, free enterprise and traditional values.
