Sen. Judson Hill (R–Marietta) received the American Legislative Exchange Council’s Legislator of the Year award last week at the organization’s 41st Annual Meeting in Dallas, Texas. Hill received the award for his dedication to ALEC principles and support of Georgia’s ALEC delegation.

“Our nation was built on the core principles of limited government and fiscal responsibility, and to this day, our overall prosperity and well-being is still directly connected to these ideologies. I greatly appreciate the ALEC’s work to advance free market principles, and it is an honor to be recognized by this notable organization,” said Hill.

Hill was first elected to the Georgia Senate in 2004. He has served in several legislative delegations and senate committees including the Senate Finance, Insurance and Labor, and Health and Human Services committees. In addition to serving as the ALEC Georgia public sector co-chair, Hill is the public sector chair of the ALEC Task Force on Health and Human Services.

“Sen. Hill has been a driving force in advancing free market principles in Georgia,” said Linda Upmeyer, Iowa Majority Leader and ALEC National chair. “We are pleased to honor his tireless efforts with this award.”

The American Legislative Exchange Council is the country’s largest 501(c)(3) nonpartisan voluntary membership organization of state legislators. The organization fosters relationships between private and public sector members from around the country to develop best practice solutions to various state issues.

Hill serves as chairman of the Finance Committee and represents the 32nd Senate District which includes portions of Cobb and Fulton counties.
