Statement by the President

Congressman Pat Toomey's concern for the steel retirees he represents is reflected in provisions of the Export-Import Bank Reauthorization bill, S. 1372, that I signed into law today.

These provisions will ensure the Export-Import Bank will no longer provide financing to projects that would have an adverse effect on already beleaguered domestic industries such as the steel industry.
