In today’s economy, technology and data are essential to the success of every company. Business Roundtable advocates for policies to ensure that the U.S. continues to lead the world in innovation, while safeguarding consumer privacy and trust.

Harnessing Responsible Artificial Intelligence

Artificial intelligence (AI) is a set of powerful and versatile technologies with beneficial applications across virtually every corner of the economy, driving prosperity and serving as a catalyst of opportunity. Fully unlocking AI’s transformative potential for the benefit of society and the economy will require policies that foster the technology’s development, as well as building and maintaining public trust in AI — imperatives with shared responsibility across corporations and government.

Promoting a National Framework for Data Privacy and Security

Data and digital platforms are essential to competitiveness in today’s marketplace. Business Roundtable members support a comprehensive, nationwide consumer data privacy law that strengthens protections for consumers and enables continued innovation and growth in the digital economy.

Enhancing America’s Cybersecurity Posture

The United States needs to improve its defenses against sophisticated and determined cyber threats with a coordinated, multilayered and cutting-edge strategy. Business Roundtable supports federal efforts that enhance the nation’s cybersecurity posture, harmonize regulatory requirements and improve collaboration between the public and private sectors.

Restoring Immediate Expensing for Research and Development (R&D) Investments

For the first time in nearly 70 years, American businesses of all sizes are prohibited from expensing R&D investments in the same year they occurred, placing the U.S. at a competitive disadvantage and stifling technological innovation. Business Roundtable supports restoring full and immediate expensing for R&D investments.
