Still Working for Ex-Im Bank

Many have signed on to the Washington Council on International Trade’s letter to the Washington Congressional delegation, urging swift passage – at higher lending levels – of the reauthorization of the Export-Import Bank of the United States.

This week's Senate Ex-Im Bank vote seems to be more about political positioning than a final action on reauthorization.  Despite this week’s setback in the Senate, we continue to believe that Ex-Im Bank is a vital resource for a wide diversity of Washington state businesses that must be a top federal priority.

This letter – signed by business, government and labor leaders from across the state – demonstrates a strong and widespread commitment to this issue, and will be a powerful statement to our delegation. WCIT will continue its efforts, and asks all to please let them know if they can be of help in your related activities.
