Washington, DC – The Club for Growth today released the following statement after Chairman Rob Bishop (UT-1) and Representative Chris Stewart (UT-2) announced their opposition to re-authorization of the Export-Import Bank:
“The Club for Growth applauds Chairman Bishop and Congressman Stewart for declaring their opposition to re-authorization of the Export-Import Bank,” said Club for Growth President David McIntosh. “Utah can be proud of their bold representation. Chairman Bishop has rightly criticized Ex-Im’s ‘interference in what should primarily be private business decisions and transactions,’ and Congressman Stewart has joined him with a clear call that Ex-Im is beyond reform and must be ended. The Club for Growth agrees and is proud to stand with these courageous Members and the many others who oppose Ex-Im.”
Note: The Club for Growth is withdrawing its previously announced television and digital ad campaign in Utah. The ad campaign was to urge these two Members to oppose Ex-Im. Ads will air as announced, beginning tomorrow, in in the congressional districts of Chairman Bill Shuster (PA-9) and Representative David McKinley (WV-1), on broadcast and cable TV, and in digital formats, in Johnstown, PA, Clarksburg, WV, and Wheeling, WV.
The Club for Growth is the nation’s leading group promoting economic freedom through legislative involvement, issue advocacy, research, and education.
