Fortner named Champion of Free Enterprise

State Rep. Mike Fortner, R-West Chicago, has been awarded the Champion of Free Enterprise by the Illinois Chamber of Commerce. Fortner was also recently named the Guardian of Small Business by the National Federation of Independent Business.

“I am honored to receive both these prestigious awards,” said Fortner. "We need more jobs in Illinois, and by supporting measures to help business, business can create more jobs."

Fortner voted with the Illinois Chamber of Commerce on 87 percent of Chamber supported bills. The Champion of Free Enterprise is awarded to legislators with an 85 percent rate or higher.

Chamber initiatives for the 97th General Assembly included workers’ compensation, independent tax review, environmental permitting and regulation, procurement reform, pipeline construction, healthcare overhaul implementation, and employment law.
