Award Recognizes Cunningham’s Support of Pro-Growth Economic Policies

Washington, D.C. – Rep. Joe Cunningham (SC-01) today received the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s prestigious Spirit of Enterprise Award for his support of pro-growth economic policies during the first session of the 116th Congress. The Spirit of Enterprise Award is given annually to Members of Congress based on rankings the U.S. Chamber gives for key pro-free enterprise, pro-economic growth, and pro-jobs votes. It also reflects Cunningham’s commitment to the bipartisan leadership and constructive governing necessary to move our country forward.

“It is an honor to receive the Spirit of Enterprise Award from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce,” said Rep. Joe Cunningham.  “I am proud to advance pro-business, pro-growth legislation because I know that support for business means greater economic prosperity for our community. The Lowcountry is home to major international companies, world-class ports, and thousands of small businesses because folks know our community is a great place to start and grow a business. As we recover from this public health and economic crisis, I will continue to support policies that create jobs, promote growth, and reignite our economy.”

“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.”
