LETTERS FROM THE PRESIDENT TO BIPARTISAN LEADERSHIP ON NAB FUND
 
The letters from President Obama linked below were sent to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Minority Leader John Boehner late last week. As a follow up to the commitment made with other G-20 leaders at the meeting in London last month, President Obama proposes an expansion of the New Arrangements to Borrow fund from $50 billion to $550 billion, of which the US participation would be up to $100 billion.  Such participation does not represent a budgetary expenditure or any increase in the deficit since it effectively represents an exchange of assets.  The letter also asks for a further enlargement of NAB membership to include increased participation in the major emerging market countries.
