WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Family Research Council Action (FRC Action) recently released its annual scorecards announcing “True Blue” award winners for the First Session of the 117th Congress. Rep. Pete Sessions is among the 74 members of Congress who scored a perfect 100 percent for votes cast in 2021. Recently, FRC Action awarded him with a “True Blue” award for displaying unwavering commitment to and support of faith, family, and freedom.
Family Research Council Action President Tony Perkins made the following comment:
“We thank Rep. Sessions for defending faith, family, and freedom. He has voted to reject the radical gender ideology that would overhaul our federal civil rights framework to mandate special privileges for sexual orientation and gender identity. He voted to protect women, the military, homeless shelters, and public restrooms from this harmful ideology. He has voted to protect the sanctity of human life for unborn babies, end taxpayer funding of abortion, and prevent additional taxpayer funding of abortion both domestically and overseas. He also voted to expand protections for conscience rights and reject the increasing acceptance of marijuana use.
“Texans should be encouraged to know that they have a champion like Rep. Sessions in Congress who, despite relentless attacks from the Left and the media, is standing strong for faith, family, and freedom,” concluded Perkins.
Representative Pete Sessions said:
“I am honored to have earned FRC Action’s True Blue Award for 2021 by voting 100% of the time with them. This great organization helps to educate the American people and bring awareness to Members in Congress who are fighting to keep biblical values of family and freedom at the forefront of our country’s policies. We must always remember that the United States of America is a blessing from God, and we need to treat it as such.”
