A Congressman representing the state of Kansas receives the “Spirit of Enterprise Award” from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce for his support of pro-business issues from January 2019 through January 2020. This is the 32nd year that the Chamber has formally honored the accomplishments of this select group of members of Congress. By earning the 2020 Spirit of Enterprise Award, Congressman Steve Watkins has shown his commitment to not only supporting pro-business legislation, but also his commitment to the bipartisan leadership and constructive governing necessary to move the country forward.
Watkins says businesses face enough challenges as is and the last thing they should have to worry about is the government getting in their way. He says he will always lead the way to cutting red tape so that Kansas businesses can thrive and prosper in the free enterprise system.
