Buy America bill introduced in Kentucky

Posted by scapozzola on 01/14/2013

Kentucky State Representative Jeff Donahue has introduced a new 'Buy America' bill.

Donohue's bill would require public works projects in Kentucky that are funded with taxpayer dollars to use American-made iron, steel, and manufactured goods when possible.

The Alliance for American Manufacturing (AAM) has long advocated Buy America preferences in order to boost domestic manufacturing.
