Washington, D.C. – Congresswoman Elise Stefanik (R-NY-21) has cosponsored H.R. 3611 – legislation to reform and reauthorize the Export-Import Bank of the United States. Congresswoman Stefanik has previously cosponsored H.R. 597, the Reform Exports and Expand the American Economy Act, and this new legislation is identical to the Senate’s Ex-Im reauthorization bill.
“My top priority in Congress is fighting for job creation and economic growth,” said Congresswoman Stefanik. “The Export-Import bank is a critical program for businesses in our district, such as the Plattco Corporation and New York Air Brake. I will continue advocating for this important program, and I urge House leadership to bring this reauthorization measure to a vote without delay.”
This legislation is a four-year reauthorization bill that will keep American jobs here at home, make the Bank’s practices more accountable, and enhance taxpayer protections by requiring the Bank to become more solvent and self-sufficient.
