Business Roundtable appreciates the opportunity to comment on the Securities and Exchange Commission’s (the “Commission” or “SEC”) proposed rule—FAST Act Modernization and Simplification of Regulation S-K (the “Proposed Rule”).

As the nation’s leading organization of CEOs, Business Roundtable strongly endorses the conference report on H.R. 1, the Tax Cut and Jobs Act of 2017. We urge the House to pass this legislation quickly.

Below are six insights we've gathered about the benefits of trade with South Korea, America's seventh largest export market, including those enjoyed under the United States-Korea Free Trade Agreement (KORUS).

Dear Member of the United States House of Representatives:

Business Roundtable urges you to vote in favor of H.R. 1, Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.

The Honorable Jeb Hensarling

The Honorable Maxine Waters
Ranking Member
Committee on Financial Services
U.S. House of Representatives

The undersigned organizations urge the conference committee to reject section 830 of the Senate-passed version of H.R. 2810, the “National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2018,” that would effectively reinstate a version of the recently overturned regulations that implemented President Obama’s “Fair Pay and Safe Workplaces” (FPSW) Executive Order.
