The U.S. Chamber of Commerce has awarded four members of Washington’s Congressional delegation with Spirit of Enterprise awards.
Those receiving the honor include Republican Representatives Jaimie Herrera Beutler (District 3).; Dan Newhouse (District 4); Cathy McMorris Rodgers (District 5); and Democrat Representative Derek Kilmer (District 6).
The award with more than a 40-year history traditionally has gone to legislators whose voting records were at least 70% in support of businesses. For the first time this year, the chamber chose to expand factors in its scoring to include proven bipartisanship and leadership on issues.
Washington Retail congratulates this year’s winners for their distinguished service in support of the retail industry.
