DOWNERS GROVE, IL – State Sen. Ron Sandack (R-Downers Grove) has been named a “Champion of Free Enterprise” by the Illinois Chamber of Commerce. Additionally, the Illinois Chamber has recognized him as the outstanding freshman of the Senate.
Every two years, the Illinois Chamber of Commerce recognizes legislators that have made special contributions in the defense of free enterprise and the promotion of economic opportunities for people in Illinois. The Chamber rates each legislator’s vote on what the Chamber has designated as a list of key business legislation. Legislators that receive a rating averaging 85% or better are declared a Champion of Free Enterprise.
Sen. Sandack voted with the Chamber on several pieces of legislation, such as opposing the 67% tax increase in January 2011, and supporting the Enterprise Zone extensions, which resulted in the Chamber recognizing him as both a Champion of Free Enterprise and an outstanding freshman.
“I am very pleased to be recognized by the Chamber in this manner for my first two years in the General Assembly,” Sen. Sandack said. “Supporting free enterprise and economic growth is extremely important if this state is ever going to climb out of the hole that it’s dug itself into. By casting votes in ways the Chamber sees as promoting business friendly policies, we can start to foster a better environment for people to do their business in the state. I plan to continue to vote in business friendly ways and promote the free enterprise system for the people of Illinois.”
