Representative encourages economic growth with a new initiative

Posted: Updated:

CLEVEALND, BRADLEY COUNTY, TN (WRCB) -- Congressman Chuck Fleischmann is hoping to encourage economic growth with a new initiative.

At a meeting with Bradley County leaders Tuesday morning, Fleischmann introduced his idea for "Economic Excellence Awards."

He says it's part of his plan to empower local businesses.

"We've got to make sure that we have a situation in Tennessee where we make it friendly for business to stay, to come, to invest, to grow," says Rep. Fleischmann.

Fleischmann blames the country's economic problems on heavy taxes and regulation of small businesses.

His office is seeking nominations from voters. Several awards will be issued throughout the year.
