McMorris Rodgers: Outlier on Export-Import Bank

Labor and industry have set aside their differences to urge Congress to reauthorize the Export-Import Bank before its charter expires on Sept. 20, as they have done for 80 years. The bank is so important to the U.S. economy that 41 U.S. House Republicans signed a letter of support for reauthorization, joining all House Democrats. But the name of Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers, R-Spokane, was noticeably absent from the letter, and she’s the only member of the Washington state congressional delegation who has not declared support for the bank.
