The Saline Courier Weekend - - NEWS -

State Rep. Julie May­berry, of Hens­ley, was re­cently awarded the 2019 States­man Award by Fam­ily Coun­cil Ac­tion Com­mit­tee.

May­berry re­ceived the award for mak­ing an A on the 2019 Fam­ily Coun­cil Ac­tion Com­mit­tee leg­isla­tive re­port card. Re­cip­i­ents of this award are rec­og­nized for their votes dur­ing the 92nd Gen­eral As­sem­bly on the 25 bills in the re­port card. May­berry re­ceived her award Thurs­day at the Capi­tol in Lit­tle Rock.

May­berry is cur­rently serv­ing in her sec­ond term as a state rep­re­sen­ta­tive and works in me­dia and ad­ver­tis­ing for Spirit Pub­li­ca­tions Inc.

For the 92nd Gen­eral As­sem­bly, May­berry serves on the House Pub­lic Trans­porta­tion Com­mit­tee, the Leg­isla­tive Joint Au­dit­ing Com­mit­tee and the House Ag­ing, Chil­dren and Youth, Leg­isla­tive and Mil­i­tary Af­fairs Com­mit­tee.

Dur­ing the 2019 leg­isla­tive ses­sion, May­berry spon­sored HB 1385, now Act 983.

Act 983 is a new law that ef­fec­tively pro­hibits liquor stores from open­ing near a pub­lic or pri­vate day­care fa­cil­ity li­censed by the state of Arkansas.

May­berry and her hus­band, Andy, cur­rently re­side in Hens­ley, and have four chil­dren.

The award was pre­sented to May­berry by Ken Yang, po­lit­i­cal di­rec­tor of Fam­ily Coun­cil Ac­tion Com­mit­tee based in Lit­tle Rock.

“Leg­is­la­tors reg­u­larly face tough votes at the Capi­tol and their hard work, good votes, and ded­i­ca­tion to Chris­tian fam­ily val­ues are of­ten un­known to the pub­lic,” Yang said. “We chose votes on bills based on our core be­lief in pro­mot­ing, protecting, and strength­en­ing tra­di­tional fam­ily val­ues. We are thank­ful that Rep. May­berry’s votes on those bills re­flect our mis­sion. We are pleased to present Rep. May­berry with the 2019 States­man Award.”

Fam­ily Coun­cil Ac­tion Com­mit­tee is slated to present awards to leg­is­la­tors through 2019.
