Business Roundtable appreciates the opportunity it has had since our letter to you of May 30, 2014, to discuss with U.S. Treasury and OECD officials the OECD's Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (BEPS) project. As you are aware, the U.S. business community has been particularly concerned that the BEPS project risks increasing costs, uncertainty, and barriers to trade and investment such as duplicative taxation. As you review the 2014 deliverables and work commences on the remaining items, we urge you to keep foremost in mind that economic growth and broadly-shared prosperity flow from eliminating barriers to trade and investment and avoiding the creation of new barriers.
The undersigned associations view the U.S. Export-Import Bank (Ex-Im), with its mission to provide competitive financing in order to create or sustain U.S. jobs, as one of the most important available tools to promote economic growth through exports. Accordingly, we strongly support the swift reauthorization of Ex-Im Bank.
Letter was sent to Sens. Ron Wyden (D-OR) and Orrin Hatch (R-UT) of the Senate Finance Committee, and Reps. Dave Camp (R-MI) and Sandy Levin (D-MI) of the House Ways and Means Committee.
Business Roundtable strongly supports important provisions included in H.R. 4413 that will reform derivatives regulation to focus more effectively on addressing potential systemic economic risk.
Business Roundtable supports your efforts to promote economic growth through sound economic policies and reducing barriers to trade and cross-border investment.

Business Roundtable appreciates the leadership that Members of Congress have shown toward achieving comprehensive, pro-growth tax reform.

We the undersigned, representing hundreds of thousands of U.S. jobs, write to request that The Energy Savings and Industrial Competitiveness Act of 2014 (S. 2262) be considered by the full Senate as soon as possible.
