From the Naperville Area Chamber of Commerce:
The Illinois Chamber and the Naperville Area Chamber of Commerce will award Illinois State Senator Michael Connelly and State Representative Grant Wehrli the Champion of Free Enterprise Award on September 26, 2018, at the NACC Legislative Forum at 11:30 A.M.
“While most Illinois lawmakers continue to provide lip service to the need for pro-growth reforms, these 47 lawmakers are committed to supporting and defending Illinois employers throughout the State,” said Todd Maisch, President, and CEO of the Illinois Chamber of Commerce.
In order to receive the award, a senator or representative must have received an average of 85 percent or better voting record over the previous two Illinois General Assemblies. Voting records are based on a legislator’s votes on a measure the chamber deems important to the state’s business community.
“Local residents and businesses alike benefit from their commonsense approach to growing our tax base and reducing impediments to free enterprise,” said Colin Dalough, Director of Government Affairs and Business Development of the NACC.
