Harper Receives Spirit of Enterprise Award

Today, U.S. Representative Gregg Harper (R-Miss.) received the annual Spirit of Enterprise Award for his support of pro-jobs, pro-growth policies during the second session of the 113th Congress.

“For 50 years, through our How They Voted scorecard, the U.S. Chamber has been recognizing legislators from both sides of the aisle who have worked to pass legislation and enact policies that bolster our country’s economy, create jobs and keep our nation’s spirit of enterprise alive,” U.S. Chamber President and CEO Thomas J. Donohue said. “The Spirit of Enterprise award honors those members of Congress like Congressman Gregg Harper (MS-03) who have recognized the need and shown a commitment to pro-growth policies in the second session of the 113th Congress.”

“Having worked in both the private and public sector, I understand that the role of government should be to clear the way for those who want to start and grow a business, not stand in the way,” Harper said. “I am so honored to receive this recognition from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and will continue to fight for pro-job solutions that support American business, industry, and economic success.”
