Obama Jobs Panel Pushes Tax Reform, Domestic Drilling

Monday, 16 January 2012 11:39 PM

WASHINGTON, Jan 17 (Reuters) - President Barack Obama's jobs council is calling for a corporate tax overhaul, expanded domestic drilling and new regulatory reforms, a set of proposals unlikely to provide a quick fix for high unemployment or gain much traction in an election year.

A panel of business leaders advising Obama -- whose re-election chances could hinge on whether he can boost the fragile U.S. economy -- will offer its latest job-creation prescriptions at a White House meeting with him on Tuesday. A draft of its report was obtained by Reuters. (Editing By Peter Cooney)
