Will receive Spirit of Enterprise award
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (June 26, 2015) — Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) will be the keynote speaker at the Greater Louisville Inc. Capitol Connection from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on June 29. McConnell will update local business leaders on many of the top issues facing Congress and address questions from local business leaders.
He also will be awarded the Spirit of Enterprise by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce in recognition of his support of pro-growth policies during the 113th Congress.
The award is given annually to members of Congress based on their votes on critical business legislation. Members who supported the Chamber’s position on at least 70 percent of votes qualify to receive the award. McConnell voted with the Chamber 100 percent of the time.
McConnell, who began serving as Senate Majority Leader in January, is only the second Kentuckian to ever serve in the post.
