McMorris Rodgers Receives “Best of Congress Award” From Working Mother Media and Corporate Voices for Working Families
Washington, D.C. – Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA), Ranking Member on the Workforce Protection Subcommittee, received the “Best of Congress Award” by Working Mother Media and Corporate Voices for Working Families today.
The “Best of Congress Award” spotlights the Congresswoman’s support for family-friendly workplace legislation and practicing pro-family policies in her office.
“I am very proud to accept the ‘Best of Congress Award,’” said Rep. McMorris Rodgers.
“As a working mom, I understand the rewards of motherhood plus the challenges of striking a work-life balance. As a member of Congress, I’ve championed legislation to change federal statutes which were enacted more than 30 years ago and no longer reflect the needs of 21st century families.”
Rep. McMorris Rodgers is the author of H.R. 933, The Family-Friendly Workplace Act. This bill would allow private-sector employers and employees to work together to determine whether overtime pay or comp time for extra hours worked is most beneficial.
“We are honored to recognize Cathy McMorris Rodgers as being one of the Best of Congress Award recipients,” said Tiffany Westover-Kernan Vice President of Business Development and Government Relations at Corporate Voices. “Representative McMorris Rodgers is a working mom who is passionate about issues involving working families and recognizes how difficult it is for working men and women to balance work and life responsibilities.”
Corporate Voices for Working Families is the leading national business membership organization representing the private sector on public and corporate policy issues involving working families. Working Mother magazine reaches 2 million readers and is the only national magazine for career-committed mothers.
Rep. McMorris Rodgers is one of 30 Members of Congress to receive this year’s award.
