Vote Description

HR 1735 (Roll Call 206) Reauthorizing the Export-Import Bank

The Kirk amendment to the Defense authorization bill reauthorizes the Export-Import Bank. This Depression-era bureaucracy primarily helps a select few multi-billion dollar corporations increase their international business. ACU opposes this crony-capitalist policy, which gives foreign airline companies discounted loan rates to purchase American planes, and supported this motion to table (or kill) the amendment. The Senate rejected the motion on June 10, 2015 by a vote of 31-65. A “Yes” vote supports the ACU position
