Indianapolis, IN (August 17, 2016) – U.S. Senator Joe Donnelly was presented the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s Spirit of Enterprise award for his work in Congress in support of pro-growth legislation today in a ceremony with the Indy Chamber.
Donnelly has continued to support policies that help to make Indiana a more attractive place to live and work. Donnelly’s support of initiatives such as the Indy Chamber’s regional economic development strategy and mass transit show his dedication to the priorities of business development.
“Sen. Donnelly recognizes that business is the backbone of Indiana’s economy, and we at the Indy Chamber appreciate the senator’s continued efforts to make Indiana a prime location for economic growth and entrepreneurial innovation,” said Michael Huber, president and CEO of the Indy Chamber.
“When everyone works together it fosters an environment for Hoosier businesses to create good-paying jobs and economic growth to improve our communities,” noted Sen. Donnelly. “It is an honor to receive the Spirit of Enterprise award, and I will continue working with Indiana’s local chambers and businesses to help grow Indiana and our country’s economy.”
Donnelly was presented the award following a small breakfast with the Indy Chamber and key stakeholders discussing federal legislation and its impact on Hoosier businesses across the state. This will be the second time Donnelly has been honored with this award. He was also honored by the U.S. Chamber in 2013.
