Rep. Poliquin Honored with the Spirit of Enterprise Award for Near-Perfect Voting Score on Job Growth
U.S. Chamber of Commerce Honors Rep. Poliquin’s Job Creation Record
WASHINGTON – Today, Maine’s Second District Congressman, Bruce Poliquin, was presented the Spirit of Enterprise Award by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce in recognition of his near-perfect score of 95%—among the highest ratings of all Members of Congress—from the pro-business group for his work and votes to support job creation in Maine during his first year in Congress. After the ceremony, Congressman Poliquin released the following statement:
“I greatly appreciate the Chamber’s award and recognition of the work I’ve done in Congress to help create jobs, and I understand there is still much more to be done ahead to grow our economy,” said Congressman Poliquin.
“As many Mainers unfortunately know all too well, disastrous policies from Washington are smothering Maine businesses and threatening hundreds of jobs across our State. In the coming year, I will continue to fight for fair policies that promote business growth and expansion and allow for more workers to be hired in our communities throughout Maine.”
