Senate rejects Export-Import Bank reauthorization
The Senate voted not to reauthorize an export bank that its supporters - a coalition of Democrats, some Republicans and prominent business interests - say generates thousands of jobs. The vote on reauthorizing the Export-Import Bank, part of an overall package that would lift a half-dozen regulations for small businesses, failed 55-44. The measure needed 60 votes to proceed.
