BUSINESS ROUNDTABLE COMMENTS ON EPA REGULATIONS THAT MAY BE APPROPRIATE FOR REPEAL, REPLACEMENT OR MODIFICATION 
Docket ID No. EPA-HQ-OA-2017-0190
May 15, 2017
 
These comments are submitted on behalf of Business Roundtable, an association of chief executive officers of leading U.S. companies.  Business Roundtable member companies produce more than $6 trillion in annual revenues and employ nearly 15 million people worldwide.  A 2016 Business Roundtable survey reported that, for the fifth year in a row, CEOs identified regulation as the top cost pressure faced by their company.  And, in another recent survey, 82 percent of Business Roundtable members said that they find the U.S. regulatory system more burdensome than that of other developed countries.  These findings are alarming if we want a healthy, growing U.S. economy that provides economic opportunities for all.  Business Roundtable CEOs believe that a smarter regulatory system and a modernized federal permitting process will help drive increased business investment, economic growth and job creation.
 
Business Roundtable commends the Administration for its commitment to creating an investment climate conducive to economic growth and the accelerated creation of high-quality jobs.  EPA’s request for comments to inform the deliberations of its Regulatory Reform Task Force is one of a series of important actions by the Administration to implement its regulatory reform agenda.
