U.S. Chamber of Commerce Endorses Kendra Horn

September 1st, 2O2O

OKLAHOMA CITY, OK – On Tuesday, Congresswoman Kendra Horn (OK-5) received the endorsement of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce for her work advancing pro-jobs, pro-growth policies in Congress. Earlier this year, Congresswoman Kendra Horn received the Chamber’s highest bipartisanship score among the Oklahoma congressional delegation. Congresswoman Horn ranks higher with the U.S. Chamber for her legislative record than Oklahoma’s Senator Inhofe, Senator Lankford, Congressman Hern, and Congressman Mullin. For her bipartisan leadership and pro-growth voting record, Congresswoman Horn was one of only a handful of Members to receive the Abraham Lincoln Leadership for America Award and was also recognized with the Spirit of Enterprise Award.

“I am honored to have the endorsement of the U.S. Chamber because it means I’ve delivered on my promise to bring both parties together in support of Oklahoma’s businesses and economic opportunity in our state. I fought to save small businesses during the pandemic and hosted a job fair to connect Oklahomans with dozens of local employers. In Congress, I work with business and industry leaders from aerospace to health care to oil and gas to support our diverse economy. My support for pro-growth policies, like USMCA, set our businesses, workers, and families up for success. We don’t have to choose between policies that are good for our people and policies that are good for our pocketbooks.”

The U.S. Chamber gave Congresswoman Horn the third highest score in the House of Representatives among members of her party for her pro-business track record.

Congresswoman Horn fought to pass bipartisan legislation in support of small businesses during the pandemic. She helped introduce the bipartisan Paycheck Protection Program Flexibility Act, one of her 16 bills signed into law by President Trump. Congresswoman Horn also fought to pass the bipartisan RESTART Act to save Oklahoma’s performance venues and other businesses facing barriers to reopening. 

As oil and gas prices plunged earlier this year, Congresswoman Horn introduced legislation to invest in the Strategic Petroleum Reserve and called for a federal investigation into illegal Saudi oil dumping practices. In a bipartisan funding deal, Congresswoman Horn secured provisions retroactively applying and extending the biodiesel tax credit to support the energy, trucking, and travel industries.

In August, Congresswoman Horn hosted a virtual Oklahoma Job Fair featuring 29 local employers. More than 8OO Oklahomans tuned in to hear about job openings in the state.
