U.S. Congressman Hal Rogers (KY-05) has received the American Future Fund “Free Market Defender” Award for upholding conservative, free market ideas during the 111th Congress.

“I am proud to have received the Free Market Defender Award from the American Future Fund,” said Rogers. “Big government has run amuck and has trampled on our founding values. In these challenging economic times we need to stop the bureaucratic mess in Washington and return to free market principles so that we can get our economy back on track. I applaud the American Future Fund for their hard work in standing up for conservative ideas. Rest assured, I will continue to put the taxpayer first and fight to rein in wasteful government spending once and for all.”

The American Future Fund was formed to provide Americans with a conservative and free market viewpoint to have a mechanism to communicate and advocate on the issues that most interest and concern them. With their belief that conservative and free market principles are under attack in America, they strive to be a voice for these principles that focus on bolstering America’s global competitiveness across the county.

Rogers has served Kentucky’s 5th Congressional District since 1981. With a focus on economic development, job creation, fighting illegal drugs and preserving Appalachia’s natural treasures, he has a reputation for listening to his constituents and fighting for the region he represents.
