The U.S. Chamber of Commerce Tuesday presented Senator Joe Donnelly and Senator Dan Coats of Indiana with the annual Spirit of Enterprise Award for their support of pro-jobs, pro-growth policies during the second session of the 112th Congress.
President and CEO of the U.S. Chamber, Thomas J. Donohue, said Senator Donnelly has provided America’s job creators with a strong voice in Congress. He also commended Senator Coats for his support of pro-business issues during the second session of the 112th Congress.
The Chamber’s prestigious Spirit of Enterprise Award, in its 25th year, is given annually to members of Congress based on key business issues outlined in the Chamber publication How They Voted. Members who support the Chamber’s position on at least 70% of those votes qualify to receive the award.
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is the world’s largest business federation representing the interests of more than 3 million businesses of all sizes, sectors, and regions, as well as state and local chambers.
