Three Steps for the Ex-Im Bank

1) Tell Congress to Reauthorize the  Export-Import Bank
2) Sign onto the letter to Congress - Deadline June 4, 2014


3) Show Your Support for the Ex-Im Bank!

As the Wall Street Journal noted last Wednesday, the Export-Import Bank of the United States plays a crucial role in our economy. Last year, Ex-Im supported the purchase of $37.4 billion worth of exports that created or sustained approximately 205,000 American jobs at 3,400 companies. It is especially important to small and medium-sized businesses, which account for nearly 90 percent of the Ex-Im's transactions.

Ex-Im will expire on September 30, 2014, without Congressional reauthorization. We urge you to show your support for Ex-Im and the opportunities it creates by signing our letter to Congress and encouraging your business members to do the same.

Additionally, we invite you to join U.S. Chamber's Senior Director Christopher Wenk and Senior Vice President Jack Howard on a conference call Wednesday, May 28 at 1:00 pm EST. They will discuss Ex-Im's effect on the business community and how your organization can benefit from its reauthorization. To register for the call, click here.

We appreciate your support and look forward to speaking with you on Wednesday.
