Graham Supports Reauthorization of Export-Import Bank in the Senate

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) today spoke on the Senate floor in favor of reauthorizing the Export-Import (Ex-Im) Bank.  The Export-Import Reauthorization Act of 2012 reauthorizes the Bank through 2014, contains substantial reforms and transparency measures, and increases the Bank’s lending cap to $140 billion.


Last week the House of Representatives passed the measure 330-93 (Graham Applauds House Passage of Ex-Im Bank Reauthorization) and the Senate is expected to vote later today.
