Entry Description

STATEHOUSE (Nov. 27, 2012) — State Sen. Doug Eckerty (R-Yorktown) received the Indiana Chamber of Commerce’s “Small Business Champion Award” recently for his efforts to support small business advocacy and growth.

“Senator Eckerty has worked tirelessly on behalf of Indiana’s small businesses, paving the way for less government red tape and more success for business owners and their employees,” Indiana Chamber President Kevin Brinegar said. “Our state is directly impacted by the positive, pro-growth policies he has supported.”

Eckerty’s work on several laws during the 2012 legislative session led the Chamber to consider him for this honor. These efforts include authoring a bill that would have expanded the eminent domain rights of small businesses and supporting the elimination of Indiana’s inheritance tax.

Earlier this year, the Chamber recognized Eckerty for his 94 percent pro-jobs, pro-economy voting record as well.

“It is an honor to be recognized by such an outstanding organization as the Chamber,” Eckerty said. “As the General Assembly continues to look for ways to further boost Indiana’s economy, our small businesses are a vital source of innovation, job growth and future development. In this upcoming legislative session, I will again work with my fellow lawmakers to continue support for our small businesses.”

Eckerty was one of four legislators recognized at the Chamber’s 2013 Central Indiana Legislative Preview Luncheon. The Chamber has sponsored Small Business Champion awards annually since 1993.
