Timmons: Senate Is ‘For Us’ – Job Creators and Manufacturers

But Long Term Solution is Needed

Washington, D.C., June 10, 2015 – National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) President and CEO Jay Timmons released the following statement after the Senate voted in support of a long-term reauthorization of the Export-Import (Ex-Im) Bank.

“For months, our message to Congress about the reauthorization of the Ex-Im Bank has been simple, you are either for us or you are against us. You are either for job creators and manufacturers, or you are willing to sacrifice our global competiveness. This procedural vote was a sign of broad, bipartisan support for a long-term reauthorization, but manufacturers need more from our Congressional leaders. It’s past time to move beyond the political maneuvering and let manufacturers in the United States compete and succeed on the world stage.”
