Reid Plans Vote to Reauthorize Export-Import Bank

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., said he plans to hold a vote on the Export-Import Bank before its authorization expires at the end of the fiscal year.

I think its really important that we have legislation like this that has the wide support of business groups around the country; its something that creates jobs, Reid said.

But he declined to speculate when that would be and whether it would be considered separately or as part of a package, like a continuing resolution that may be needed to keep the government open beyond Sept. 30, the last day of the fiscal year.
