FILE - In a May 30, 2012, file photo President Barack Obama signs the reauthorization of the Export-Import Bank Act of 2012, at the Eisenhower Executive Office Building  in Washington. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce, and the business community wanted quick reauthorization of the EX-Im Bank, which helps finance American companies’ overseas sales. Now the business community is pressing the Senate to ratify a treaty governing the high seas, arguing that it would open a new path to oil, gas and other resources and produce thousands of jobs. Prospects are uncertain as conservatives stand united in opposition. They condemn the pact a threat to U.S. sovereignty. (AP Photo/Pablo Martinez Monsivais, File)
