Laredo, TX— Congressman Henry Cuellar (TX-28) was awarded the Spirit of Enterprise award by the United States Chamber of Commerce for his support of pro-job, pro-growth policies in the U.S. House of Representatives for the second session of the 116th Congress. Including the Spirit of Enterprise award, the U.S. Chamber presented Congressman Cuellar with three awards this year.
“Whether it was working to pass the USMCA or fighting for additional small business loans during this pandemic, I have been committed to supporting policies that create economic prosperity” said Congressman Cuellar. “As our nation’s businesses look to safely reopen, it is critical that we work across the aisle to implement policies that help them navigate these unprecedented times. As a former small business owner, I will continue to fight for hard-working workers and small businesses until they are back on their feet. I want to thank the U.S. Chamber of Commerce for this honor and their dedication to advocating for pro-growth policies.”
“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.”
By earning the 2020 Spirit of Enterprise award, Members of Congress have shown their commitment to not only supporting pro-business legislation, but also a commitment to the bipartisan leadership and constructive governing necessary to move our country forward. Congressman Cuellar also received the Abraham Lincoln Leadership for America Award and the Jefferson-Hamilton Award for Bipartisanship. These two awards are presented to members of Congress who demonstrate the bipartisan leadership and constructive governing necessary to move our country forward.
