231017 Thank You CR FRA Congress


October 17, 2023


Dear Member of Congress:

As Congress continues to work through the controversies and challenges of the day, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce greatly appreciates your work to govern responsibly and provide the certainty that the American business community needs by voting in favor of the Fiscal Responsibility Act of 2023 and the Continuing Appropriations Act, 2024.

Your votes to keep the government at work and to meet America’s debt obligations prevented direct harm to millions of American families, communities, and businesses. The enclosure catalogues some of the negative impact your vote prevented to communities in your state.

The true essence of democracy lies in the ability of elected officials to find common ground for the common good. With strong bipartisan support, you and an overwhelming number of your colleagues seized an opportunity to foster collaboration, restore confidence in America’s fiscal health, and set a path forward to safeguard future generations.

Thank you, again, for supporting American business by voting “aye” on these two bills.


Evan Jenkins
Senior Vice President
Government Affairs
U.S. Chamber of Commerce
