Congressman Francis Rooney earns Spirit of Enterprise Award from U.S. Chamber of Commerce
Washington, DC- Last week, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce presented Congressman Francis Rooney with the Spirit of Enterprise Award. The award honors members of Congress that are strong supporters of free enterprise in America and is based upon scoring of the Congressman’s voting record on key Chamber of Commerce initiatives.
Congressman Rooney stated, “It is an honor to receive the Spirit of Enterprise award from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. As a lifelong businessman, and somebody who understands what it is like to sign the front of a paycheck, I believe in the pro-growth principles espoused by the Chamber and support their efforts to help businesses succeed. Lessening regulatory and tax burdens on our business community makes it easier to hire and easier to offer good paying jobs that benefit hard working Americans.”
This marks the 30th year the Chamber has administered the Spirit of Enterprise Awards. Scoring was based upon fourteen key votes taken by the U.S. House of Representatives in 2017. Those members earning a cumulative score of 70% or higher earned the Spirit of Enterprise Award.
