Ohio Senator Rob Portman has received the Spirit of Enterprise Award from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
“To receive this prestigious award, members of Congress are scored on their votes on critical business legislation as outlined in the Chamber’s annual scorecard, How They Voted. Members who supported the Chamber’s position on at least 70 percent of those votes qualify to receive the award.”
“During the second session of the 115th Congress, the Chamber scored members on 10 Senate votes and 12 House votes on legislation related to, for example, reducing health care costs, strengthening our immigration system, expanding access to capital, and combatting the opioid crisis. This is the 31st year that the U.S. Chamber has formally honored the accomplishments of this select group of members of Congress.”
Congratulations to Senator Portman for receiving the award and thank you for supporting the Small Business Community.
We need more small business representation in Washington and it is imperative that their voices are heard.
