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.

In full-page ads run in POLITICO, Roll Call and The Hill this week, Business Roundtable said:

  • The Keystone XL pipeline extension is an environmentally responsible infrastructure project that will put Americans back to work, boost U.S. economic recovery and strengthen America’s energy security.
  • The Keystone XL project would directly employ thousands of Americans and potentially create tens of thousands of new U.S. jobs as more than 800,000 barrels a day of North American oil begins flowing to U.S. Gulf Coast refineries – a steady, reliable and affordable supply of energy to power America’s economic recovery.


Creating jobs, driving economic growth and boosting U.S. energy security should be an easy decision for Congress and the President.

Achieving America's Full Potential

The CEO members of Business Roundtable believe

that realizing America’s full potential to create more high-wage jobs for U.S. workers and greater opportunity for middle-class families should be the nation’s top priority. America’s business leaders have identified six priorities for action by Congress and the Administration.
