Award Honors Strong Record of Support for Business Community

WASHINGTON, D.C.—Congressman Tom MacArthur today announced he has received the Spirit of Enterprise Award from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. The award is given in recognition of MacArthur’s support for pro-jobs, pro-growth policies in the first session of the 114th Congress.

Recent legislation Congressman MacArthur has supported includes the Estate Tax Repeal, which would protect family-owned businesses facing the liquidation of assets in order to pay the taxes on a death, the Protecting Americans from Tax Hikes Act to provide certainty to small business owners by making important sections of the tax code permanent, and the Keystone XL Pipeline Approval Act to produce good, high-paying jobs.

“We are pleased to recognize Congressman MacArthur for engaging in pro-business policymaking that helps strengthen our nation’s spirit of enterprise,” said Tom Donohue, president and CEO of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. “The Spirit of Enterprise Award honors those members of Congress who are committed to ensuring that American businesses can continue to operate and succeed in a free enterprise system.”

“I am proud to support pro-growth policies that empower entrepreneurs, workers and business leaders,” said Congressman MacArthur. “Creating good paying jobs in South Jersey and across the country must continue to be our highest priority. It’s an honor to receive this prestigious award – I’ll continue fighting to create opportunity and a growing economy.”
