U.S. Rep. Randy Hultgren, R-Winfield, released the following statement after recently receiving the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s “Spirit of Enterprise” award.
“I’m honored to have received this award, given to those in Congress who have stood on the side of free enterprise and the private sector, and who have worked as I have to cut red tape, reduce spending, and shrink the federal government,” said Hultgren. “As I visit small businesses across the 14th District, I hear time and again just how important it is that we do those things, and in doing so make it easier for small businesses to hire and expand. I look forward to working with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce in the future, as we fight for the vitality of America’s job creators.”
“Over the past year, Congressman Hultgren has worked to protect and advance the interest of America’s jobs creators,” said Thomas J. Donohue, president and CEO of the U.S. Chamber. “By supporting pro-growth policies, Congressman Hultgren is helping unleash the power of free enterprise to put our economy back on track and put Americans back to work.”
