Washington, D.C. – Representative Tom McClintock (R – Granite Bay) today received the Spirit of Enterprise Award from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. The award is given annually to members of Congress for supporting legislation critical to the American business community.
“Commerce is the life’s blood of our economy,” said Representative McClintock. “No great civilization has risen without great commerce, and no civilization has endured that has not protected and defended its commerce. That is why I am honored to receive this award.”
This is the twenty-second year that the U.S. Chamber has formally honored members of Congress with its “Spirit of Enterprise” award based on rankings for key business votes. The awards given today were in recognition of votes in the First Session of the 111th Congress.
“The business community depends on solid partnerships on Capitol Hill to help grow the economy and create new jobs for hardworking Americans,” Tom Donohue, Chamber president and CEO, said. “This award recognizes those lawmakers who have demonstrated leadership on important business issues.
“The Chamber applauds Representative McClintock for supporting the private sector and job growth through these difficult times, said Donohue. “He has demonstrated great courage and we commend him.”
The U.S. Chamber is the world’s largest business federation and represents more than three million business and organizations.
