Exporters For Ex-Im Coalition Applauds House For Ratifying Ex-Im Reform And Reauthorization

The Exporters For Ex-Im Coalition issued the following statement today after a bipartisan majority of the U.S. House of Representatives successfully blocked 10 amendments designed to stall the reauthorization of the Export-Import (Ex-Im) Bank:

“We applaud Congress for its determination last night in ratifying the Kirk-Heitkamp-Fincher Ex-Im language in the highway bill, mirroring the legislation which was passed last week by an overwhelming majority of Republicans and Democrats in the House. This moves Ex-Im reauthorization and reform one step closer to reality, and sends a clear signal to the conference committee that any further changes to Ex-Im would be undermining the will of the super majority in both chambers.

“We commend the House and Senate for moving legislation that includes the most sweeping reforms to the Ex-Im Bank since the Reagan Administration.

“We urge Congress to finish its work on Ex-Im and once again provide U.S. exporters with the critical tools they need to export products and grow jobs in the U.S.”
