LANSING, Mich. — Sen. Dale Zorn recently accepted the Champion of Free Enterprise award from Leah Robinson, director of legislative affairs and leadership programming for the Michigan Chamber of Commerce.
“It is an honor to be recognized for our hard work on behalf of Michigan workers and small businesses to help strengthen our economy and support new growth and investment,” said Zorn, R-Onsted. “Michigan families and job providers across our state continue to face real challenges, like inflation, and I will continue to listen to them and work on effective solutions that help businesses thrive and provide good jobs for our people.”
“We are pleased to present Sen. Dale Zorn with his ‘Champion of Free Enterprise’ award in support of consistently voting to support jobs, taxpayers and economic growth,” said Jim Holcomb, president and CEO of the Michigan Chamber of Commerce. “That’s the kind of pragmatic policy and problem-solving that helps build a robust, resilient business climate and a stronger Michigan that works for our businesses, communities and families.”
The Champion of Free Enterprise award is given by the Michigan Chamber of Commerce to legislators who voted on key bills in a manner that positively impacted Michigan businesses and employees across the state. To receive the award, a legislator must have a 100% voting record on select bills that took priority for Michigan Chamber members in a certain legislative term. For the 2021-2022 legislative cycle, 17 legislators across both the Michigan House of Representatives and Michigan Senate received the prestigious award.
The Michigan Chamber tallies and releases the information in their “Job Provider Index” at the end of each legislative cycle.
