On Capitol Hill last week, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce presented Congressman
Fincher of Tennessee with the annual Spirit of Enterprise Award for his support of pro-jobs, pro-growth policies during the first session of the 112th Congress.
“Over the past year, Congressman Fincher has worked to protect and advance the interests of America’s job creators,” said Thomas J. Donohue, president and CEO of the U.S. Chamber.
“By supporting pro-growth policies, Congressman Fincher is helping unleash the power of free enterprise to put our economy back on track and put Americans back to work.”
The Chamber’s prestigious Spirit of Enterprise Award, in its 24th year, is given annually to members of
Congress based on key business issues outlined in the Chamber publication “How They Voted.”
Members who support the Chamber’s position on at least 70 percent of those votes qualify to receive the award.
According to the scorecard, Congressman Fincher maintained a 100 percent rating with the Chamber this year and collectively holds a 100 percent ranking during his tenure in Congress.
The Chamber scored Congress on 11 Senate and 16 House votes in 2011, including the repeal of 1099 reporting requirements, the three percent withholding from contractors, and the health care law.
