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.
The nation’s tax system is in urgent need of reform to boost economic growth, increase global competitiveness for American companies, and bring about meaningful improvements in the incomes of American families through higher wages and more American jobs.
America’s business leaders have long called for a smarter, more effective approach to financial regulation that focuses on limiting systemic economic risk while continuing to enable U.S. businesses to innovate and grow.
Business Roundtable President John Engler recently testified during the hearing, "Corporate Governance: Fostering a System that Promotes Capital Formation and Maximizes Shareholder Value."
The pro-growth agenda laid out by the Speaker presents an opportunity for Democrats and Republicans to create policies that help more individuals realize the American dream. Too many people still find themselves out of work or in a place that does not enable them to maintain a high quality of life.
Business Roundtable has long advocated for increased supervision of proxy advisory firms by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). Business Roundtable also supports efforts to ensure that investment advisers are exercising appropriate oversight over the proxy advisory firms they retain, consistent with their fiduciary duties as registered investment advisers.
