Jacksonville, F.L. – Last week, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce honored U.S. Rep. Gus Bilirakis, R-Fla., with the Advocate for American Business Award “for his bipartisan efforts to support small businesses throughout the nation.”

Moore Hallmark, the vice president and managing director for the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, presented Bilirakis with the award.
