|Re-authorization of the Export-Import Bank (Ex-Im)|
In a year with a busy legislative agenda and a collection of “must pass” bills, the U.S. Export-Import Bank (Ex-Im) can’t be overlooked. Its charter will lapse at the end of September. Congress must begin work soon to reauthorize the bank, and the Senate must confirm a quorum for its board so that it can function properly as an engine of exports and job creation.
The bank’s latest congressionally mandated Competitiveness Report notes: “As of June 6, 2018, there are nearly $43 billion in transactions in Ex-Im’s pipeline that require a vote by Ex-Im’s Board of Directors that could support an estimated 250,000 U.S. jobs.”
