Rep. Tom McClintock, R-Elk Grove, has received the Spirit of Enterprise Award from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

“Commerce is the life’s blood of our economy,” McClintock said. “No great civilization has risen without great commerce, and no civilization has endured that has not protected and defended its commerce. That is why I am honored to receive this award.”

This is the twenty-second year that the U.S. Chamber has formally honored members of Congress with its “Spirit of Enterprise” award, based on rankings for key business votes. The awards were given this week.

“The business community depends on solid partnerships on Capitol Hill to help grow the economy and create new jobs for hardworking Americans,” said chamber President and CEO Tom Donohue. “This award recognizes those lawmakers who have demonstrated leadership on important business issues.”

He commended McClintock’s “great courage.”

The chamber is the world’s largest business federation, representing more than 3 million businesses and organizations.
