Washington, D.C. – Today, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce honored Congresswoman Elise Stefanik (R-NY-21) with its annual Spirit of Enterprise Award, given in recognition of her support for pro-growth policies in the second session of the 114th Congress.
“I thank the U.S. Chamber for this great honor and recognition of my support for pro-growth policies in Congress,” said Congresswoman Stefanik. “As someone who grew up in a small business family, I know that the U.S. Chamber is the guardian of the business community in many ways. Promoting economic growth and job creation is my top priority in Congress, and I will continue to advocate for policies that will help North Country families and businesses.”
“Businesses of all shapes and sizes need sound, commonsense policy in place in order to get off the ground, grow, and succeed,” said Thomas J. Donohue, president and CEO of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. “The Spirit of Enterprise Award recognizes those members of Congress who have done what’s right for our friends, family, and neighbors running businesses across the country. We applaud Congresswoman Stefanik for her commitment to free enterprise and economic growth.”
The Chamber’s prestigious Spirit of Enterprise Award is given annually to members of Congress based on their votes on critical business legislation as outlined in the Chamber’s annual scorecard, How They Voted. Congresswoman Stefanik received a cumulative score of 96 percent in the 114th Congress.
