From a press release from the Georgia Chamber:
Today, the Georgia Chamber of Commerce proudly presented U.S. Senator Johnny Isakson with its Business Champion Award while surrounded by members of Georgia’s Congressional Delegation and other business leaders during the annual D.C. Fly-In in Washington.
The Georgia Chamber’s Business Champion Award is presented to elected officials and other advocates who exhibit unparalleled servant leadership, and promote policies positively impacting free enterprise at the state and federal levels. Senator Isakson has exemplified these credentials and much more throughout his forty plus year career as a public servant.

President and CEO of the Georgia Chamber, Chris Clark, stated, “Our state has been fortunate to be represented by a true statesman who has worked tirelessly to promote Georgia and our business community. Senator Isakson embodies honor and integrity of the highest accord. We applaud him for his years of dedication and service to the state of Georgia and are grateful for his steadfast leadership.”
