Allred Earns U.S. Chamber Award for Bipartisan Work to Grow Economy with 96% Bipartisan Score
Washington, D.C. – Congressman Colin Allred (TX-32) received the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s Jefferson-Hamilton award for his bipartisan work in Congress to grow the economy, create jobs and support the business community. The Chamber gave Allred a 96% score for being among the most bipartisan members of the House and recognized his leadership in Congress. Last year, Allred received the Spirit of Enterprise Award from the U.S. Chamber noting his bipartisan work, including his work to pass the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Trade Agreement.
“I will always put North Texas first and do all I can to find areas of bipartisan agreement that help grow our economy to support our businesses and workers,” said Allred. “This pandemic has been especially difficult for our workers and small businesses, which is why I was proud to join my colleagues from both sides of the aisle in passing relief to help folks weather this storm. I’m honored to receive the U.S. Chamber’s award and will continue to seek out common-sense solutions that will help us build back better and expand our economy in a way that works for all North Texans.”
“These awards recognize members of Congress who demonstrated a commitment to advancing bipartisan solutions that address our nation’s problems and move our economy forward,” said U.S. Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Suzanne Clark. “In a time of intense polarization and gridlock Congressman Allred’s record of working across the aisle is to be commended.”
Allred has repeatedly held virtual events and roundtables with chambers of commerce in communities across the 32nd District of Texas and worked to support small businesses throughout this pandemic. Last week, he held a roundtable with Secretary of Labor Marty Walsh and the Dallas Regional Chamber.
