House Approves Export-Import Bank Reauthorization; Rep. Lipinski Praises Bipartisan Action to Pass this Job-Creating Bill (October 28, 2015)

Congressman Dan Lipinski (IL-3) released the following statement after the House approved the reauthorization of the Export-Import Bank Tuesday with bipartisan support:

“On Tuesday, Congress was able to come together to pass legislation to revive the much-needed Export-Import Bank, which provides financing for foreign customers to purchase goods and services from U.S. companies.  The bank supports manufacturing firms throughout the 3rd District of Illinois, creating jobs, supporting sales and exports, and keeping our economy growing.  Since 1990, Ex-Im has returned to American taxpayers $7 billion more than it has received.  I am hopeful that the Senate acts quickly on this bill and that the bipartisanship witnessed on this issue can be repeated on other critical issues that directly impact the hard-working people of my district and this nation.”
