The U.S. Chamber of Commerce released its How They Voted scorecard, an effort that began 50 years ago, and also honored 208 members of the House of Representatives and 40 members of the Senate with its annual Spirit of Enterprise Award, given in recognition of their support of pro-growth, pro-jobs policies during the second session of the 113th Congress.

“For 50 years, through our How They Voted scorecard, the U.S. Chamber has been recognizing legislators from both sides of the aisle who have worked to pass legislation and enact policies that bolster our country’s economy, create jobs and keep our nation’s spirit of enterprise alive,” U.S. Chamber President and CEO Thomas J. Donohue said. “The Spirit of Enterprise award honors those members of Congress who have recognized the need and shown a commitment to pro-growth policies in the second session of the 113th Congress.”

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.

During the second session of the 113th Congress, the Chamber scored members on eight Senate votes and 14 House votes, including terrorism risk insurance (TRIA), tax extenders, and the “CRomnibus.” Also scored were votes to ensure free speech, fund transportation and infrastructure, and to further U.S. energy independence.

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is the world’s largest business federation representing the interests of more than 3 million businesses of all sizes, sectors, and regions, as well as state and local chambers and industry associations.
