WHEREAS, The United States Conference of Mayors recognizes the importance of trade, exports and overseas investments to the economic health of America’s counties and the security of the United States; and

WHEREAS, U.S. businesses export billions of dollars in goods and services annual, and account for much of the economic gains made in the United States in recent years; and

WHEREAS, the Overseas Private Investment Corporation (OPIC) has backed projects sponsored by U.S. companies worth over $121.6 billion, creating $58 billion in U.S. exports and creating more than 237,000 American jobs; and

WHEREAS, that The United States Conference of Mayors and its associated would benefit greatly from the job creation and new revenues which result from these overseas investments,

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that The United States Conference of Mayors supports H.R. 1933 and S. 688 which would re-authorize OPIC’s operations for the next four years.
