About BRT

Washington — Business Roundtable President John Engler issued the following statement in response to bipartisan agreement on a spending bill that will fund government operations through December 9: 

“America’s business leaders applaud the Senate for passing a short-term spending bill to fund government operations, demonstrating a commitment to fiscal stability. We urge swift House passage of the legislation.

“We remain disappointed, however, that the Senate will leave town without enabling the U.S. Export-Import Bank to fully operate and consider export financing transactions above $10 million, which promote U.S. exports, job creation and growth.

“When Congress returns after the elections, we hope it will address this matter. This action will support more high-wage jobs in the United States and bolster U.S. economic leadership.”
