Waltz Receives High Marks from U.S. Chamber for Supporting Economic Growth

Washington, June 22, 2020

WASHINGTON, D.C. – On Monday, U.S. Rep. Michael Waltz (R-Fla.) was named a winner of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s Spirit of Enterprise Award, which highlights support for pro-business, pro-growth policies and working together in a bipartisan way during the 116th Congress. Waltz received a score of 90 percent, one of the highest scores statewide.

“As a former business owner, I understand the importance of supporting policies to empower businesses and help them grow,” Waltz said. “COVID-19 has highlighted the need to support these pro-business policies, which will be critical for our country’s economic recovery and instrumental to provide Americans jobs so our country can bounce back stronger than ever. I am honored to receive the Spirit of Enterprise Award and am fully committed to working in Congress to ensure all businesses can thrive nationwide.”

“In these uncertain times with daunting economic and social challenges facing our nation, it is imperative that leaders in Washington are focused on propelling American businesses forward to create jobs and economic growth from California to Maine,” said Thomas J. Donohue, CEO of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. “As we rebuild our economy, legislators must lead by pursuing bipartisan solutions that create jobs and promote a free enterprise system. I’m proud to recognize these 259 Members of Congress for their commitment to driving opportunity and prosperity in America’s workforce and on Main Streets across the nation.”
