David Cote, chairman, CEO and president of Honeywell International, parent company of Honeywell Security, will be part of the President's National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform, a bi-partisan panel charged with tackling the skyrocketing U.S. deficit. Members of the panel are named by legislative leaders on both sides of the aisle and the President. Cote, a Republican, was named by Obama. Cote is also a member of the U.S.-India CEO Forum, which Obama asked him to co-chair. Reports say Obama wanted to have Cote’s business perspective on the deficit reduction panel.
