LEAGUE CITY -- U.S. Rep. Tom DeLay received an enterprise award from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce today as well as getting an endorsement from the national group.

DeLay, R-Sugar Land, was presented with the "Spirit of Enterprise" award from the chamber group during a Clear Lake Area Chamber of Commerce luncheon. Peter Havel, regional executive director for the U.S. Chamber of Commerce in Dallas, presented the award to DeLay for his "outstanding leadership" and "for voting with the business community on a consistent basis."

Havel said the chamber group relies on legislators such as DeLay who believe in free enterprise, fewer taxes and job creation.

Havel also announced the national chamber group's endorsement of DeLay as he seeks re-election for Congress.

"We want to let you know we're behind you," Havel told DeLay.
