Rep. Rick Larsen, WA-02, issued the following statement after Leaders Cantor and Hoyer announced a deal to extend and expand the Export-Import Bank:
"I'm encouraged to see the Republican and Democratic leaders of the House have come to an agreement to extend and expand the Export-Import Bank,"Larsen said. "The deal they reached is largely in line with the bipartisan legislation I introduced with Rep. Manzullo earlier this year.
"I've been meeting with small manufacturers in Northwest Washington this week. Many of them rely on the Ex-Im bank to sell their products overseas and create jobs here at home. I look forward to voting for this deal next week and ending the uncertainty for our manufacturers."
