Without Action, Ex-Im Charter Expires in 17 Days

This week, a letter signed by more than 200 companies and organizations — including the OMA — was sent to federal lawmakers urging the U.S. House and Senate to pass a “robust and long-term re-authorization” of the Export-Import Bank.

Ex-Im operations are threatened by a Sept. 30 deadline by which Congress must re-authorize the bank’s charter. (See the NAM’s story here.) As the official export credit agency of the United States, Ex-Im has served 200 Ohio exporters — mostly small businesses — since 2014, with a combined $1 billion in exports. 9/12/2019
