Vote Alert: House: Export-Import Bank Reauthorization

Conservative Review

This reauthorization of the Export-Import Bank (Ex-Im) expanded the bank's lending authority an additional 40% for a total of $140 billion. Ex-Im is the poster child for corporate welfare. Additionally, the bank distorts the free market with taxpayer-backed subsidies pitting one section of the US economy against the other. This bill passed the House on May 9, 2012 in a roll call vote of 330-90, and was signed into law on May 30, 2012.
