Topic: U.S. Export-Import Bank

“If Congress doesn’t act soon, the U.S. Export-Import Bank will hit its $100 billion credit exposure limit by May 1 and will stop issuing direct loans, loan guarantees and export-credit insurance in aid of American exports to risky markets. Then, on May 31, the legislation authorizing the Bank will expire, threatening the Bank’s very existence.”
