Obama To Push Export Aid

President plans Export-Import Bank funding for U.S. companies.

President Barack Obama will promote steps to boost U.S. exports as he visits the commercial aviation hub of Boeing Co., the planemaker at the center of a regulatory clash last year.

Obama will announce plans for Export-Import Bank financing for U.S. companies to match foreign competitors’ sources of official funding and an experimental program to ease access to credit for small-business exporters, the White House said before his stop today at Boeing’s jet factory in Everett, Washington, which has more than 35,000 employees.

NLRB Complaint

The board charged Boeing with violating workers’ rights by citing strikes in Washington state as a reason for building a new 787 Dreamliner plant in South Carolina. Chaison said Obama will assert that the NLRB’s suit spurred the contract compromise that preserved jobs in Washington state and South Carolina.
