U.S. Chamber Recognizes Carbajal with Spirit of Enterprise Award
Today, Rep. Salud Carbajal (CA-24) announced the U.S. Chamber of Commerce awarded him with its annual Spirit of Enterprise Award, given to Congressmembers in recognition for their support for pro-growth policies in the second session of the 115th Congress.
“Enhancing our local economy by supporting our small businesses and entrepreneurs on the Central Coast continues to be one of my top priorities,” said Carbajal. “I’m grateful to receive this recognition from the U.S. Chamber for helping advance legislation to grow our local economy.”
“As the leading champion for business in Northern Santa Barbara County, we appreciate the value that Congressman Carbajal and his staff place on advancing our local economy," said Glenn Morris, President/CEO of the Santa Maria Valley Chamber. "We look forward to working with him in the future to find ways to help the Santa Maria Valley and the entire Central Coast thrive!”
“Every day, all across the country, America’s business owners and job creators serve their communities and strengthen their economies. We commend those leaders in Washington who recognize the vital role these businesses play and support them through commonsense, growth-oriented policy,” said Thomas J. Donohue, president and CEO of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. “By advancing good legislation, these members of Congress are helping businesses grow and thrive, keeping our economy strong, and promoting the free enterprise system that drives opportunity and prosperity.”
The Chamber’s prestigious Spirit of Enterprise Award is given annually to members of Congress based on their votes on critical business legislation. Members who supported the Chamber’s position on at least 70 percent 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 and industry associations.
