The U.S. Export-Import Bank’s authorization is set to expire on September 30, 2014, and a lapse in authorization would undermine the competitiveness of U.S. manufacturers in a tough global economy to the detriment of American manufacturing and American jobs. Congress must swiftly pass a long-term reauthorization of the Ex-Im Bank – your lawmaker needs to hear directly from you!
The U.S. Export-Import (Ex-Im) Bank is a vital tool to help grow U.S. exports and increase American jobs. As the official export credit agency of the United States, Ex-Im Bank assists in financing U.S. exports from thousands of American companies – big and small. In fact, nearly 90 percent of Export-Import Bank’s transactions directly support U.S. small business. The Ex-Im Bank helps level the playing field when U.S. exporters face foreign competitors with government backing or when companies enter emerging markets.
