The Export-Import Bank and Trade Finance

"Scott Garrett’s record leaves no doubt that he would continue to fail American manufacturing workers as leader of the Ex-Im Bank."
- Jay Timmons on Garrett's confirmation hearing

Scott Garrett’s confirmation to lead the Ex-Im Bank would be a terrible trade deal for the American manufacturing workers whose jobs depend on the agency. Scott Garrett can't be trusted with the future success of America's manufacturers, workers, and economy. Contact your Senators and tell them to oppose the nomination of Scott Garrett to serve as the president and chairman of the U.S. Export-Import Bank.
