Indiana Rep. Tim Neese, R-Elkhart, received the American Conservative Union Conservative Award “for being a distinguished conservative legislator,” he said in a press release.

“As we begin the 2013 legislative session, I believe that now, more than ever, Indiana recognizes a need for leaders who will stand up for the conservative values and standards which serve to move our state forward while addressing the needs of the economy,” said Neese.

In giving the award, the American Conservative Union tracked Indiana lawmakers’ votes on key issues during the 2012 legislative session. The award recognizes lawmakers with a voting record of at least 80 percent on conservative principles.

 People wait to cross a street in front of a Shell filling station with the electric indicator showing a liter of regular gas price, top, at 148 yen, or $1.25, per liter (554 yen, or $4.69 per gallon) in Tokyo Friday, Nov. 28, 2014. A renewed plunge in oil prices is a worrying sign of weakness in the global economy that could shake governments dependent on oil revenues. It is also a panacea as pump prices fall, giving individuals more disposable income and lowering costs for many businesses. Partly because of the shale oil boom in the U.S., the world is awash in oil but demand from major economies is weak so prices are falling. The latest slide was triggered by OPEC’s decision Thursday to leave its production target at 30 million barrels a day.
