U.S. Rep. Fred Upton, R-St. Joseph, last Thursday received the U.S. Chamber’s prestigious Spirit of Enterprise Award after receiving a 100 percent score in 2018, the only Michigan member of Congress to receive a perfect score. The Award is given annually to members of Congress based on their votes for pro-growth economic issues.

“Job creation and economic growth have always been a couple of my top priorities for southwest Michigan families,” Upton said. “It really is an honor to be just one of 16 members in the U.S. House and Senate to receive a 100 percent score in 2018. Moving forward, I am committed to continuing to fight for bipartisan policies that will spur job growth, grow the economy, and deliver real results for Michigan’s sixth district.”

Upton has a lifetime score of 94 percent. You can download a picture of Upton with the award here.
