Mica awarded by chamber
U.S. Rep. John Mica was presented with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s Spirit of Enterprise Award March 19 at the Maitland Chamber of Commerce’s annual meeting for his pro-business voting record in Congress. Each year, the U.S. Chamber polls the American business community to find out which issues matter most to them, and then evaluates the Members of Congress on how they vote on those issues. For those Members who vote 70 percent or greater receive the U.S. Chamber’s Spirit of Enterprise Award. Mica has a 92 percent cumulative record of voting pro-business, according to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
