The Export-Import Bank and Trade Finance

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.



Former Rep. Scott Garrett (R-NJ), the nominee to lead the U.S. Export-Import (Ex-Im) Bank, has been a vocal and dogged opponent of the Ex-Im Bank—and the American jobs the agency supports. He has a record of seeking to destroy the Ex-Im Bank, not reform it

Garrett’s unwavering and absolute opposition to the Ex-Im Bank makes him incapable of serving as Ex-Im Bank chairman and president, a role that confers enormous authority over all of the agency’s operations. He would move our jobs, our wealth and our factories to other countries. His nomination should be withdrawn.
