WASHINGTON, D.C.—The U.S. Chamber of Commerce today honored U.S. Congressman Rick Allen (R-Ga.-12) with its annual Spirit of Enterprise Award, given in recognition of Rep. Allen’s support for pro-jobs, pro-growth policies in the first session of the 114th Congress.

This marks the 28th year that the U.S. Chamber has formally honored the accomplishments of this select group of members of Congress.

“We are pleased to recognize Rep. Allen for engaging in pro-business policymaking that helps strengthen our nation’s spirit of enterprise,” said Tom Donohue, president and CEO of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. “The Spirit of Enterprise Award honors those members of Congress who are committed to ensuring that American businesses can continue to operate and succeed in a free enterprise system.”

The Chamber’s prestigious Spirit of Enterprise Award is given annually to members of Congress based on their votes on critical business legislation as outlined in the Chamber publication, How They Voted. Members who supported the Chamber’s position on at least 70 percent of those votes qualify to receive the award.
