The Virginia Chamber of Commerce recognized Delegate Chris Head last week at its “2013 Legislative Awards Reception and Dinner” in Tysons Corner for receiving the Champion of Free Enterprise Award and the Legal Reform Advocate Award on its 2013 Legislative Report Card. The Legislative Report Card grades legislators based on their support of pro-business issues during the recently completed legislative session. Calculated annually based on legislators’ voting records on the principles and issues outlined in Where We Stand: The Virginia Chamber of Commerce 2013 Legislative Priorities, the Legislative Report Card recognizes legislators for their support on initiatives that will help move Virginia forward, and additionally provides analysis of a legislator’s support for the business community’s priorities.

“The Legislative Report Card allows us to recognize and honor legislators who uphold free market principles and support the interests of the business community,” said Barry DuVal, President and CEO of the Virginia Chamber. “In addition, it provides analysis of a legislator’s support for the business community’s priorities.”

The Champion of Free Enterprise Award recognizes Legislators who scored 100% and grade of “A+” on the 2013 Legislative Report Card. Delegate Head worked closely with the Chamber this year to advance a legislative agenda that included topics such as education and workforce training, transportation funding and economic development.

Delegate Head also made significant contributions to advancing one of the Chamber’s main legislative priorities, legal reform, during the 2013 session. For his efforts in improving Virginia’s legal system, the Virginia Chamber recognized Delegate Head with the Legal Reform Advocate Award.
