What is Business Roundtable

Business Roundtable (BRT) is an association of chief executive officers of leading U.S. companies working to promote sound public policy and a thriving U.S. economy.

More Than Leaders. Leadership.

Business Roundtable is an association of chief executive officers of leading U.S. companies working to promote a thriving economy and expanded opportunity for all Americans through sound public policy.

About BRT

Overly complex and costly federal regulations are holding America’s economy back, throttling business investment and slowing job growth. In fact, more than half of Business Roundtable CEOs say that pending regulations will negatively affect their hiring and capital spending in the short term. In the long term, almost two-thirds believe they will be negatively affected.

Business Roundtable supports legislative and administrative actions that would make the federal regulatory process more transparent and open to public engagement, improve the quality of information used in the rulemaking process, require more objective cost-benefit analysis, extend that requirement to so-called independent agencies, and modernize the federal permitting process.

Making the federal regulatory system more efficient and effective will reduce the economic burden of regulation while protecting health, safety and environmental quality.
