The U.S. Chamber of Commerce Spirit of Enterprise Awards were recently presented to Arkansas’ Congressional delegation — U.S. Sen. John Boozman, U.S. Sen. Tom Cotton, U.S. Rep. Rick Crawford, U.S. Rep. French Hill, U.S. Rep. Steve Womack and U.S. Rep. Bruce Westerman.

“The Spirit of Enterprise Award is given annually to members of Congress based upon their votes on critical business legislation as outlined in the Chamber’s ‘How They Voted’ scorecard,” according to a news release. “Members who supported the Chamber’s position on at least 70 percent of those votes qualify to receive the award.”

This is the 30th year that Chamber formally honored such accomplishments.

“During the first session of the 115th Congress, the Chamber scored members on seven Senate votes, including those on tax reform legislation and the confirmation of Supreme Court Associate Justice Neil Gorsuch; and 14 House votes, including votes on tax reform legislation, access to Medicare, and lawsuit abuse,” according to the release. “Various votes in support of small businesses were also scored.”
