Act Now to Reauthorize the U.S. Export-Import Bank

The U.S. Export-Import Bank’s authorization expired on June 30, 2015, and the lapse has undermined the competitiveness of U.S. electroindustry manufacturers -- those who export directly and those who are suppliers to exporters in the utility, energy and medical sectors. The House and Senate have not yet agreed to renew the Bank and will not take any action before they return from the August recess period.  

As the official export credit agency of the United States, the "Ex-Im Bank" is a crucial tool to help U.S. companies -- big and small -- compete for international sales. The Ex-Im Bank works with private-sector lenders to help level the playing field when U.S. exporters seek to enter emerging markets where financing is unavailable and face foreign competitors with government-backed financing. NEMA companies need the Bank to get back in the business of supporting new export deals with the support of Congress.

 During the August recess, contact your Senators and Represenative to urge their support for renewal of Ex-Im in September! To reach your Members' Washington, DC offices by phone, contact the Capitol switchboard at 202-224-3121.
