Washington, DC – Congressman Rick Crawford (AR-1) has earned the United States Chamber of Commerce’s prestigious Spirit of Enterprise Award for the second session of the 112th Congress. The award is given annually to members of Congress based on pro-jobs based votes including reauthorization of the U.S. Export-Import Bank, reauthorization of surface transportation legislation and votes that would repeal the most onerous provisions of ObamaCare.

“The U.S. Chamber is the preeminent voice for America’s small businesses. I am honored to receive their Spirit of Enterprise Award and I look forward to working with the Chamber to advance pro-growth policies that will encourage small businesses to create new jobs and ultimately grow our economy,” said Crawford.
Thomas J. Donohue, president and CEO of the U.S. Chamber, praised Crawford’s leadership:

“In the face of high-stakes politics and difficult choices, Rep. Crawford provided America’s job creators with a strong voice in Congress,” said Thomas J. Donohue, president and CEO of the U.S. Chamber. “This award recognizes Rep. Crawford for consistently demonstrating his support for pro-growth policies.”
