WASHINGTON, DC—U.S. Congressman Peter DeFazio has received a 100 percent rating from the American Association of University Women (AAUW) on his voting record in the 109th Congress. Fewer than half of senators and representatives in the U.S. Congress received a rating of 80 percent or higher for supporting AAUW issues in the 109th Congress. AAUW based its ratings on members of Congress' support for education and family issues.
"I am proud the AAUW has recognized my efforts to ensure that legislation important to women and their families is enacted," DeFazio said. "However, many in Congress do not share my priorities, passing tax cuts for the wealthy while slashing education funding. I will continue to fight against these misguided priorities."
