AISI Applauds Build America Buy America Bill

US Senators Sherrod Brown (D-OH), Rob Portman (R-OH), Gary Peters (D-MI) and Mike Braun (R-IN) introduced a bill to ensure taxpayer-funded

US Senators Sherrod Brown (D-OH), Rob Portman (R-OH), Gary Peters (D-MI) and Mike Braun (R-IN) introduced a bill to ensure taxpayer-funded infrastructure and public works projects use iron, steel and other products that are made in America. American Iron and Steel Institute President & CEO Mr Kevin Dempsey said “All iron and steel products procured with taxpayer dollars should be produced in the United States to ensure that the full benefit of such investment is realized in the US economy. Some federal programs do not apply existing Buy America requirements for the procurement of iron and steel products. AISI believes, however, that the underlying Buy America principle should apply to all public infrastructure projects.”

He added “The legislation introduced today works toward that goal by identifying programs that are ‘deficient’ and undertaking steps to ensure the iron and steel materials purchased with taxpayer funds are made in America. We applaud the senators on this important action today.”
