Dear Ms. Arbelaez:
 
Re: Comments on Cybersecurity Framework Version 1.1 Draft 2
 

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.

Business Roundtable sent the following letter to all Members of the Senate urging support of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.

On November 20, Business Roundtable filed comments in response to EPA’s request for comments regarding whether and to the extent to which any of the best practices recommended in the annual report of the Federal Permitting Improvement Steering Council established by FAST-41 should be applicable to states that have accepted delegated authority to administer permit programs in lieu of EPA.

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
Chairman
Committee on Financial Services
U.S. House of Representatives 
Washington, DC  20515
 
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.

Business Roundtable supports the Proposed Rule published by the Environmental Protection Agency (the Agency) and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers on July 27, 20171 to rescind the 2015 Clean Water Rule (the 2015 Rule) and restore the regulatory text defining the term “waters of the United States” as it existed prior to the 2015 Rule. This action is a prudent first step in the process by which the Agency and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will reconsider the “waters of the United States” definition.

On behalf of Business Roundtable, I appreciate the opportunity to reply to the U.S. Department of Labor’s (DOL) Request for Information (RFI) related to “Defining and Delimiting the Exemptions for Executive, Administrative, Professional, Outside Sales and Computer Employees.”

On behalf of the CEO members of Business Roundtable, I am writing to express our support for the Modernizing Government Technology (MGT) Act of 2017 (S. 990) and request that you include the MGT Act as part of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year 2018 (S. 1519).

On behalf of the CEO members of Business Roundtable, we appreciate the opportunity to provide our comments on the Core Principles for Regulating the U.S. Financial System outlined in Executive Order 13772.
