House Democrats suddenly find themselves allied with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and other business groups, launching an aggressive campaign Tuesday to save the Export-Import Bank from conservative lawmakers who want to close it.
A Denver Post survey of Washington lawmakers suggests that legislation that could end the marijuana industry's cash-only practices will not move out of committee this year.
Mr. Heck stressed that the Export-Import Bank helps small business, too.
"The Export-Import Bank is a reliable way for American business — including many small businesses — to sell their goods and services into the world marketplace," he said. "If we abandon this resource, we are allowing China, Russia and European countries to gain ground in export deals previously made with us."
