Exporters For Ex-Im Coalition Applauds Texas Lawmakers For Voting To Reauthorize Ex-Im

The Exporters For Ex-Im Coalition released the following statement upon passage of legislation to reform and reauthorize the Export-Import (Ex-Im) Bank:

“We applaud the Texas lawmakers who fought for U.S. workers and voted to reform and reauthorize the Ex-Im Bank. This vote was long overdue. Nearly all Democrats and the majority of Republicans in the House voted to ensure job creators have the tools they need to compete. The debate over Ex-Im has always been about jobs and whether U.S. manufacturers can continue to compete overseas and hire right here at home.”

The following Members from Texas voted for final passage of the Ex-Im reauthorization bill:


Rep. Joe Barton

Rep. Kevin Brady

Rep. Joaquin Castro

Rep. Henry Cuellar

Rep. Lloyd Doggett

Rep. Kay Granger

Rep. Gene Green

Rep. Rubén Hinojosa

Rep. Will Hurd
