WASHINGTON – The U.S. Chamber of Commerce today presented Arizona senior Senator Kyrsten Sinema her sixth-consecutive Spirit of Enterprise award, highlighting her support for pro-growth policies that encourage job creation across Arizona.
“I’m honored to receive the Spirit of Enterprise award, and I’ll keep working across the aisle to cut red tape, fuel innovation, and create opportunity for Arizonans,” said Sinema. 
“Every day, all across the country, America’s business owners and job creators serve their communities and strengthen their economies. We commend those leaders in Washington who recognize the vital role these businesses play and support them through commonsense, growth-oriented policy,” said Thomas J. Donohue, president and CEO of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. “By advancing good legislation, Sen. Kyrsten Sinema is helping businesses grow and thrive, keeping our economy strong, and promoting the free enterprise system that drives opportunity and prosperity.”
As Arizona’s senior Senator Sinema continues her work of maximizing economic opportunity for our state. Sinema is working across the aisle to delay and repeal the Health Insurance Tax (HIT) and repeal the medical device tax. Sinema is also working with her Republican colleagues to stop harmful tariffs.
Sinema is leading the effort to reauthorize the Export-Import Bank so American businesses and manufacturers can continue to compete abroad. The Export-Import Bank helped Arizona businesses finance $2 billion in exports over the last five years, creating good jobs in our state while closing our trade deficit with countries like China.
Finally, Sinema is working across the aisle to cut red tape for startups and businesses conducting cutting-edge scientific and medical research.
