Business' Budget Blitz

The Business Roundtable is joining with Ross Perot's United We Stand America and other groups in a campaign to lobby Congress and the White House for a balanced-budget accord. The Coalition for Change, headed by AlliedSignal CEO Lawrence A. Bossidy, will enlist CEOs in an education effort to convince workers that budget balancing is a top priority. Roundtable Chairman John W. Snow, CEO of CSX Corp., says the group is mulling a fall advertising blitz pushing a bipartisan deficit-reduction solution as an alternative to the budget war brewing between President Clinton and Congress.
