On April 24 at a meeting of the Staten Island Chamber's Small Business Committee, Congressman Michael Grimm (R, C-NY) accepted the U.S. Chamber of Commerce's 'Spirit of Enterprise' Award, and talked tolls with small business owners. In preparation for the Chamber's upcoming trip to Washinton D.C. on May 9 & 10, Grimm gave an update on both the Commuter Protection Act and The Residential & Commuter Toll Fairness Act, pieces of legislation he has co-sponsored to fight inequitable tolls.
The 'Spirit of Enterprise' Award recognizes lawmakers' outstanding committment to American business, and the U.S. Chamber ackowledged that Grimm's voting record on behalf of business favored small businesses 93% of the time. Geoff O'Hara, of the U.S. Chamber's Eastern Regional Office, presented the award to a grateful Grimm, who went on the lambast high tolls on Port Authroity bridges.
