Congressman Ander Crenshaw this week earned the U.S. Chamber of Commerce "Spirit of Enterprise" award for his legislative record in support of economic growth and job creation policy in the second half of the 111th Congress.
In recognizing Crenshaw, Thomas J. Donohue, president and CEO of the U.S. Chamber stated, "The Chamber is honored to recognize Congressman Crenshaw for helping create an
environment in which businesses can grow and create jobs. He has shown great conviction by standing on the side of business, at a time when it matters most."
Crenshaw commented, "In these rough economic times, businesses across America need the support of policies that will help them, not hurt them as they fight to expand and provide jobs. I am proud to lend a hand by backing policies that boost their mission and rejecting those that put a roadblock in their way."
The Chamber's award, in its 23nd year, has been given annually to Members of Congress based on key business votes, including health care reform, tax policy, and financial services reform.
Those Members of Congress who support the Chamber's position on at least 70% of those votes qualify to receive the award. According to the scorecard, Congressman Crenshaw maintained a 100% rating with the Chamber this year and collectively holds a 96% ranking during his tenure in Congress.
