U.S. Chamber of Commerce Award Honors Strong Record of Support for Business Community

WASHINGTON, D.C.—This week, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce honored Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) with the Spirit of Enterprise Award, given in recognition of his support for pro-jobs, pro-growth policies.

“We are pleased to recognize Congressman Stewart for engaging in pro-business policymaking that helps strengthen our nation’s spirit of enterprise,” said Tom Donohue, president and CEO of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. “The Spirit of Enterprise Award honors those members of Congress who are committed to ensuring that American businesses can continue to operate and succeed in a free enterprise system.”

The Chamber’s prestigious Spirit of Enterprise Award is given annually to members of Congress based on their votes on critical business legislation. Members who supported the Chamber’s position on at least 70 percent of those votes qualify to receive the award.

“As a former small business owner, I understand first-hand how important it is to reduce regulatory burdens and focus on pro-business policies that will create jobs and grow our economy,” Stewart said. “I will continue to fight every day for policies that will provide businesses with the certainty to keep our family, friends and neighbors working.”

This marks the 28th year that the U.S. Chamber has formally honored the accomplishments of this select group of members of Congress.

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is the world’s largest business federation representing the interests of more than 3 million businesses of all sizes, sectors, and regions, as well as state and local chambers and industry associations.
