Business leaders, here's your opportunity to learn about the benefits of hosting a CRT intern.

Career Ready Tempe is a collaboration between the City of Tempe Human Services Department, Economic Development Department and the Tempe Chamber of Commerce. The program is funded by City of Tempe Innovation Funds and the US Chamber of Commerce Foundation's Career Readiness Lab Grant.

Re-authorization of the Export-Import Bank (Ex-Im)
In a year with a busy legislative agenda and a collection of “must pass” bills, the U.S. Export-Import Bank (Ex-Im) can’t be overlooked. Its charter will lapse at the end of September. Congress must begin work soon to reauthorize the bank, and the Senate must confirm a quorum for its board so that it can function properly as an engine of exports and job creation.

The bank’s latest congressionally mandated Competitiveness Report notes: “As of June 6, 2018, there are nearly $43 billion in transactions in Ex-Im’s pipeline that require a vote by Ex-Im’s Board of Directors that could support an estimated 250,000 U.S. jobs.”

 
The Drought Contingency Plan Approved!
Governor Doug Ducey and state lawmakers swept in with hours to spare Thursday to sign off on a long-awaited landmark agreement to shore up Lake Mead and secure water supplies for Arizona’s booming central corridor.

Now, the landmark deal must pass be accepted by the Federal government.
