Business Roundtable is an association of chief executive officers of leading U.S. companies working to promote a thriving economy and expanded opportunity for all Americans through sound public policy.
We strongly support the goals of ensuring that only responsible companies do business with the federal government and that those companies compete on a level playing field. However, EO 13673 is a costly and flawed regulation that fails to accomplish these goals and should be invalidated.
We strongly support the goals of ensuring that only responsible companies do business with the federal government and that those companies compete on a level playing field. However, EO 13673 is a costly and flawed regulation that fails to accomplish these goals and should be invalidated for several reasons.
The Regulatory Accountability Act of 2017 would make the U.S. regulatory system more transparent, accountable and effective.
[The] proposed rules will disenfranchise shareholders, increase the costs of contested elections to the detriment of shareholder value, and further shift power and influence to shareholders driven by special interests and largely unregulated proxy advisory firms.
BRT urges New York State Department of Financial Services to revise its proposed rule on Cybersecurity Requirements for Financial Services Companies to adopt a more risk-based approach and avoid overlapping national requirements and guidance.
Business Roundtable sent the following letter to leaders of 28 European Union member states, calling on the EU to overturn the European Commission's order that Ireland recover €13 billion from Apple for alleged illegal state aid.
America’s business leaders have consistently called upon Congress and the Administration to adopt smarter, more effective approaches to financial services regulation that target systemic economic risks without limiting business creativity and innovation.
Business Roundtable believes passage of your legislation can play a key role toward addressing this mismatch by supporting state and local efforts to build talent pipelines that provide students and workers the skills they need to succeed in today’s workforce.
With every passing day, businesses from the United States are missing out on new business opportunities overseas, to the detriment of local economies and American jobs. Congress can and must act swiftly.
Reinstating year-round Pell would provide that flexibility, allowing students to receive Pell throughout the entire academic year. Adopting this policy would more formally recognize that the needs of today’s low- income students are inadequately served by the current Pell Grant program.
Currently, federal financial aid does too little to support students who are older, returning to school, or seeking specific skills and credentials for work. These students, who may be employing strategies such as combining work and learning, accelerating their time to degree, and/or attending school part-time and year-round, need this flexibility to more successfully persist and complete their program of study.
We respectfully request that the Administration change its policies on background ozone to better assist states as implementation of the 2015 standard moves forward.
