The U.S. Chamber of Commerce has awarded U.S. Representative Ed Royce (R-Fullerton) with its annual Spirit of Enterprise Award, given in recognition of his support for pro-jobs, pro-economic growth policies during 2015.

“As a former businessman, I pride myself on listening to the concerns of California’s business community and supporting policies that promote job creation,” said Rep. Royce.

“We are pleased to recognize Congressman Royce for engaging in pro-business policymaking that helps strengthen our nation’s spirit of enterprise,” said Tom Donohue, president and CEO of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. “The Spirit of Enterprise Award honors those members of Congress who are committed to ensuring that American businesses can continue to operate and succeed in a free enterprise system.”

The Chamber’s prestigious Spirit of Enterprise Award is given annually to Members of Congress based on their votes on critical business legislation as outlined in the Chamber publication. Rep. Royce received a 95% rating and ranks among the top-rated California Members of Congress.

During the first session of the 114th Congress, the Chamber scored U.S. House of Representative members on twenty votes, including legislation to pass the first long-term transportation funding law in a decade and make permanent tax relief provisions that would have otherwise expired.
