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.

WHAT: Business Roundtable brings together budget, legislative and business experts to examine the work of the Joint Select Committee on Deficit Reduction.  Set for the first day Congress returns to Washington, “Meeting the Challenges of Economic Growth and Deficit Reduction” will offer three in-depth panel discussions. Speakers will discuss the committee’s statutory duties, the possibilities of program cuts and entitlement reforms, and the role of tax reform in promoting economic growth and job creation.
