The U.S. House of Representatives could vote on the reauthorization of the U.S. Export-Import (Ex-Im) Bank by August. CMTA's partner, the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM), has been a vocal advocate, educating Members of Congress on the importance of reauthorizing the Ex-Im Bank and underscoring its impact to the manufacturing industry.

With that in mind, we are calling on California manufacturers to urge their Representatives to support reauthorization and take action before the Bank’s charter expires on September 30. Will you contact your member of Congress today?

How you can help

1EMAIL YOUR LEGISLATORS today and tell them to take action before the September 30 deadline. Send a message through our Manufacturing Works advocacy action center and have your voice heard today! 

2. Call your Member of Congress today and ask them to support Ex-Im Reauthorization. Click here to access NAM’s primer that includes talking points. 

3. Share your story of how the Ex-Im Bank has impacted your business. Contact NAM’s Jeanine Arnett, Director of Public Affairs and Grassroots Advocacy, to share your experiences with the bank and be featured in our blog series.

Ex-Im is a vital tool that helps grow U.S. exports and increase American jobs. A lapse in Ex-Im authorization would threaten the global competitiveness of our industry in the United States and put thousands of manufacturers at a significant disadvantage. Take action today by telling your elected official to support Ex-Im Bank reauthorization!

Further, we ask that you forward this alert to your manufacturing friends and suppliers who have an interest in the reauthorization of the Ex-Im Bank.
