6/4/2019 - Stefanik Recognized
PLATTSBURGH — North Country Congresswoman Elise Stefanik was awarded the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Spirit of Enterprise Award Friday afternoon.
This was due to the congresswoman's support of pro-business policies in 2018, Political Affairs and Federation Relations Vice President and Managing Director Sara Armstrong said.
"Every year the U.S. Chamber of Commerce awards the Spirit of Enterprise based on rankings that we give members of Congress," Armstrong explained. "It's called, How They Voted."
Featured on the U.S. Chamber of Commerce website, How They Voted tracks the voting patterns of each member of Congress on a yearly basis, she added.
"You often hear somebody say, 'I'm pro-business," Armstrong said. "Those words don't matter until you actually see how they voted in Congress.
"Elise Stefanik is one of those members who is (doing) what she says back here, at home.
"We're proud that she earned a 100 percent ranking with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce."
