Roy Littlefield, executive vice president of the Tire Industry Association (TIA), was invited to meet with members of President Barack Obama's National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform to discuss economic policy, the budget deficit, the nation’s economic outlook, how public policy drives the deficit, and how budget cuts will impact future policy.

The meeting took place May 18 in Washington, DC.

Littlefield met with commission members Judd Gregg, a former U.S. Senator (R-N.H.) and chairman of the Senate Budget Committee; David Cote, chairman and CEO of Honeywell; and Andy Stern, former president of the Service Employees International Union (SEIU).

Obama created the bipartisan National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform to address the country’s economic challenges. The commission is assigned to identify policies to improve the financial situation in the medium-term and to achieve fiscal sustainability over the long run.

After the meeting, Littlefield said, “As members of the President’s commission seek bipartisan solutions to what soon could become a crippling national crisis, I was impressed that the commission had the respect for both TIA and the tire industry to seek our comments, suggestions and concerns on topics ranging from health care, to Medicaid, Medicare, Social Security, regulations, trade, tariffs and small business concerns.”
