U.S. Representative introduced bill that would support American businesses and workers
CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - U.S. Rep. Carol Shea-Porter says a bill she has introduced would support American businesses and workers
The New Hampshire Democrat introduced legislation Wednesday that would require federal departments to report to Congress on their compliance with the Buy America Act of 1933. Under that law, signed by President Franklin Roosevelt, the U.S. government must give preference to American-made products when making purchases.
Shea-Porter’s bill would amend the law to require all federal and independent agencies to conduct yearly audits to ensure they are in compliance.
