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

On behalf of the CEO members of the Business Roundtable (BRT), President John Engler sent separate letters this week to President Obama and all Members of Congress expressing BRT’s strong support for the Keystone XL pipeline extension. 

Approval to extend the Keystone XL pipeline:

  • Could directly create 20,000 new U.S. jobs in the near term;
  • Could – by aiding in the responsible development of Canadian oil sands – contribute to the creation of an additional 500,000 U.S. jobs by 2035; and
  • Enjoys the support of U.S. Governors along the pipeline’s route, major labor unions and a bipartisan majority of U.S. Senators.

Creating jobs, driving economic growth and boosting U.S. energy security should be an easy decision to make.
