WASHINGTON, D.C. – The U.S. Chamber of Commerce today honored Congressman Jody Hice (R-GA) with its annual Spirit of Enterprise Award, given in recognition of his support for pro-growth policies in the first session of the 115th Congress.

“I’ve made it a top priority to get our economy moving in the right direction,” said Congressman Hice after receiving the award. “Legislation, like the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, that makes it easier for businesses to expand and hire new employees means heftier paychecks and better benefits, which empowers families to utilize that extra money where they see fit. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce assists state and local Chamber groups in helping our businesses thrive, and it’s an honor to be recognized for my work to reduce the burden on small businesses and job creators so that our economy can create good jobs for Georgians and for all Americans.”

“It’s a good time to be doing business in America, thanks to a slate of legislative accomplishments that laid the groundwork for more economic growth and job creation,” said Thomas J. Donohue, president and CEO of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. “These efforts to advance commonsense, growth-oriented legislation will help Main Street American businesses thrive. We commend Representative Hice for his commitment to promoting and protecting American free enterprise and economic prosperity.”

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’s annual scorecardHow They Voted. Members who supported the Chamber’s position on at least 70 percent of those votes qualify to receive the award.

During the first session of the 115th Congress, the Chamber scored members on 14 House, including votes on tax reform legislation, access to Medicare, and lawsuit abuse. Various votes in support of small business were also scored. Hice received a 93% rating with the Chamber in 2017. 

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is the world’s largest business federation representing the interests of more than 3 million businesses of all sizes, sectors, and regions, as well as state and local chambers and industry associations.

Help with a Federal Agency

One of the most important things I do as a U.S. Representative is help constituents work through issues with federal agencies. Although I cannot override the decisions made by a federal agency, I can often intervene on a constituent’s behalf to get answers to questions, find solutions, or just cut through the red tape. Below you will find a list of agencies with which I can help you. However, regardless of which agency you need help navigating, you must complete a privacy authorization form to comply with the provisions of the Privacy Act. Please download this printable version of the casework authorization form and then fax or mail to the address listed under the agency from which you are seeking assistance.
