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.

Last week, while discussing Business Roundtable’s (BRT) Permitting Jobs and Business Investment: Streamlining the Federal Permitting Process report, BRT President John Engler explained why the Obama Administration and Congress must enact much-needed reforms to expedite ready-to-build U.S. infrastructure projects:

  • “‘[W]hat we are calling for today is action by Congress and the administration to both simplify and streamline the [federal permitting] process, as well as to speed up and accelerate the timeframe. … This is a jobs agenda,’ Engler said. ‘Say yes to U.S. jobs. Say yes to U.S. investment.’” BNA, April 25, 2012
  • “Projects can get stuck in regulatory limbo for years as different agencies examine federal permit applications, said BRT President John Engler. … ‘The reality is that if everybody's in charge, nobody's really in charge.’” National Journal, April 25, 2012
  • “‘The payoff is in jobs and growth,’ …. Engler said, investment will remain inside the United States if there’s a reform of the approval system. U.S. executives, he said, ‘want this country to win.’” – The Daily Caller, April 25, 2012
