Public Opposition to Export-Import Bank
The U.S. Export-Import Bank’s charter is scheduled to expire on June 30, 2015, at which point the taxpayer-backed bank will begin winding down its operations (12 U.S.C. §635f). Because there is no House vote scheduled before the bank’s expiration, Heritage Action will reward members publicly opposed to the bank’s reauthorization with a favorable key vote on the legislative scorecard.
As representatives publicly announce their opposition to reauthorizing the Export-Import Bank, Heritage Action will add their names to the website and include as a key vote on the scorecard.
