We are getting closer and closer to the expiration of the Export-Import Bank’s charter and even closer to the Bank reaching its lending limit. The Ex-Im Bank is essential to small and medium-sized manufacturers and throughout the entire supply chain of larger manufacturers.
Just last year the Bank supported more than 290,000 manufacturing jobs. In order for manufacturers to continue to grow our exports and create jobs the Ex-Im Bank needs to be reauthorized and the lending limit raised as soon as possible.
The Bank operates at no cost to the taxpayer, returning more than $3.4 billion to the Treasury over the past five years. We can’t afford for Congress to do nothing.
Please contact your Representative today and urge support for the “Securing American Jobs Through Exports Act of 2011” (H.R. 2072). Click here to send an email to your Representative today.
For additional information on the Export-Import Bank and to hear how the Bank has helped some small manufacturers please visit www.nam.org/exim.
