Award went to top 5% of representatives for their support of policies that will help American businesses

WASHINGTON – Today, Representative Josh Harder (CA-10) announced that he has won the US Chamber of Commerce’s Abraham Lincoln Leadership for America Award in recognition of his pro-business record in Congress for the second year in a row. Rep. Harder has been dedicated to supporting American businesses throughout his time in office. He helped pass the Paycheck Protection Program which has saved almost 100,000 jobs in the Central Valley and is working to secure millions in federal investments for projects such as the Crows Landing Business Park Project that will create thousands of new good paying jobs in the Valley.

 

“Before I ran for office, my job was to help the smallest operations grow into real and successful companies. I was proud to take that know-how to Congress and I’m honored to be recognized for the work we’re doing in the Central Valley,” said Rep. Harder. “We need policies that make it easier to start a business and hire workers right here in the Valley, more investments in projects such as the Crows Landing Business Park Project, and a commitment to improving our infrastructure so all our workers and businesses can succeed. I’ll keep at it until our Valley is among the best places in the country to work and to run a business.”

 

“These awards recognize members of Congress based on their co-sponsorship of legislation important to the business community,” said U.S. Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Suzanne Clark. “The Chamber appreciates Rep. Harder’s support of policies that create jobs and support economic growth.”

 

This award is yet another recognition of Rep. Harder as one of the most bipartisan and accessible members of Congress. Read more about the award here.
