Senate: Finish the Job on Ex-Im Bank


The U.S. Senate needs to fill a vacancy on the Export-Import (Ex-Im) Bank board of directors, so that the bank can fully function to support American export jobs. In a guest column published in the Cincinnati Enquirer, OMA’s Ryan Augsburger wrote:  “… in order for Ex-Im to approve larger transactions that create the most American jobs, it needs a full quorum of members on its Board of Directors. Since the bank is currently one member short, refusing to confirm the nominee for that slot could effectively hamstring Ex-Im’s ability to create jobs.” The U.S. Senate should confirm Mark McWatter.  Both of our Ohio Senators are on board.
