President Joe Biden is slated to meet Wednesday with CEOs from a number of companies as he tries again to push for passage of his social-spending and climate bill, according to a White House official. General Motors (GM) CEO Mary Barra, Ford (F) CEO Jim Farley, Microsoft (MSFT) President Brad Smith, Salesforce.com (CRM) CEO Marc Benioff and TIAA CEO Thasunda Brown Duckett are due to be among the participants in the meeting. Corning (GLW) CEO Wendell Weeks, HP (HPQ) CEO Enrique Lores, Cummins (CMI) CEO Tom Linebarger, Etsy (ETSY) CEO Josh Silverman and Siemens USA CEO Barbara Humpton also are expected to take part. "The president will meet with CEOs who support passing Build Back Better to discuss the ways his Build Back Better agenda will make the U.S. economy more competitive, increase worker productivity and workforce participation, lower inflation over the long-term, and strengthen business growth," the White House official said. "The private sector leaders will highlight what they see as the key benefits of BBB for the American economy and American business."
