Representative Ed Royce (R-Fullerton) today received the US Chamber of Commerce’s Spirit of Enterprise Award in recognition of his support of pro-growth, pro-jobs policies during the first session of the 113th Congress.
“Real economic growth has always and will always come from the private sector,” said Royce. “Washington must get out of the way and make it easier, not harder, for job creators to grow and hire.”
The Chamber’s prestigious Spirit of Enterprise Award is given annually to members of Congress based on their votes on critical business legislation outlined in the Chamber publication, How They Voted. Members who supported the Chamber’s position on at least 70% of those votes qualify to receive the award.
According to this year’s scorecard, Royce received a 77% rating with the Chamber in 2013 and has a cumulative rating of 84% for his tenure in Congress.
“2013 was challenging, but Congressman Royce worked to pass legislation and enact policies that will keep our country moving forward economically,” U.S. Chamber President and CEO Thomas J. Donohue said. “The Spirit of Enterprise Award recognizes legislators like Congressman Royce who have demonstrated their commitment to supporting pro-growth policies in the 113th Congress.”
