Ex-Im Temporarily Extended Through Nov. 21

Late last week, President Trump signed a seven-week continuing resolution into law to keep the federal government running through Nov. 21. Of note for manufacturers, the extension includes a short-term reauthorization of the U.S. Export-Import Bank (Ex-Im). The National Association of Manufacturers’ Linda Dempsey said while this move was a necessary step, Ex-Im users need more certainty to plan for the future. As the nation’s official export credit agency, Ex-Im has served 159 exporters in Ohio since 2015, with a combined $1 billion in exports. 10/1/2019
