Shea-Porter Introduces Bill to Amend Buy American Act

Press Release

Location: Washington, DC

Today, Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter introduced a bill that would proactively ensure that federal and independent agencies comply with the Buy American Act. The Buy American Act, which was signed into law by President Roosevelt in 1933, requires the US government to give preference to US made products when making purchases. Shea-Porter's amendment would require all federal and independent agencies to conduct yearly audits to ensure that they are in compliance with the original legislation.

"Over the past decade, millions of American manufacturing jobs have been shipped overseas, and our government has a responsibility to support US companies by purchasing Made in America products," said Congresswoman Shea-Porter. "My bill will help ensure that both federal and independent agencies comply with the Buy American Act."
