SANTA BARBARA Rep. Salud Carbajal has been recognized by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce with its annual Spirit of Enterprise Award, given to congress members for their support for pro-growth policies in the second session of the 115th Congress.
“Enhancing our local economy by supporting our small businesses and entrepreneurs on the Central Coast continues to be one of my top priorities. I’m grateful to receive this recognition from the U.S. Chamber for helping advance legislation to grow our local economy,” Mr. Carbajal said in a statement.
The chamber’s 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 those votes qualify for the award.
