REP. JACKY ROSEN HONORED WITH SPIRIT OF ENTERPRISE AWARD FROM U.S. CHAMBER OF COMMERCE
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Congresswoman Jacky Rosen (NV-03) was awarded the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s Spirit of Enterprise Award in recognition of her support for pro-growth policies in the first session of the 115th Congress.
“I’m honored to receive the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s Spirit of Enterprise Award and appreciate this important recognition,” said Rosen. “From large casinos and resorts, to tech startups and local restaurants, supporting Southern Nevada’s business community is essential to our long-term economic future. We pride ourselves on being a business-friendly state. I will continue to advocate for policies in Congress that support our business community, so residents and visitors alike can benefit from everything we have to offer.”
“It’s a good time to be doing business in America, thanks to a slate of legislative accomplishments that laid the groundwork for more economic growth and job creation,” said Thomas J. Donohue, President and CEO of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. “These efforts to advance commonsense, growth-oriented legislation will help Main Street American businesses thrive. We commend Congresswoman Rosen for her commitment to promoting and protecting American free enterprise and economic prosperity.”
BACKGROUND: The U.S. Chamber’s Spirit of Enterprise Award is given annually to members of Congress based on their votes on critical business legislation as outlined in the Chamber’s “How They Voted ” scorecard. 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 the U.S. Chamber has formally honored the accomplishments of this select group of members of Congress. Rosen was one of only 13 Democrats in Congress to receive the award this year. Nevada is home to more than 200,000 small businesses.
A report by Quorum Analytics ranked Rep. Rosen as one of the most bipartisan freshmen members of the House of Representatives in the 115th Congress. According to the report, 41 percent of the legislation Rosen has co-sponsored was introduced by a Republican, making her the fifth-most bipartisan freshman member in the House.
