Sen. Crawford Receives “Business Champion” Award

JEFFERSON CITY — State Sen. Sandy Crawford, R-Buffalo, has been named as a 2019 “Business Champion” by the Missouri Chamber of Commerce and Industry during a ceremony held on Sept. 11.

“It is always nice to be recognized for work done on behalf of hardworking small business owners throughout the 28th Senatorial District,” Sen. Crawford said. “I would like to thank the Missouri Chamber for this recognition. They are a great partner to have, as we work toward empowering our small business owners throughout the state.”

Senator Crawford sponsored several pieces of legislation this year that provide more tools for small businesses and entrepreneurs throughout the state, including Senate Bill 54, which enacts provisions relating to insurance companies; Senate Bill 174, which modifies provisions relating to taxation; and House Bill 612, which transfers the State Council on the Arts from the Department of Economic Development to the Office of the Lieutenant Governor. All of these measures were signed into law.

“The Missouri General Assembly was successful in passing numerous pro-business policies in the 2019 legislative session,” Missouri Chamber President and CEO Daniel P. Mehan said. “We applaud our Business Champions for their leadership and commitment to advance legislation that will help our state prosper both now and in the foreseeable future.”
