Today, the Biden administration announced a new increase in the general government procurement requirements, directing federal agencies to Buy America. The rule will gradually increase the required American-made products for various projects from 55% to 75%. In response, the BlueGreen Alliance released the following statement from Executive Director Jason Walsh:
“Increasing the requirement to Buy America will ensure greater investment in our nation’s manufacturing sectors, more domestic economic independence, and stable work and income for American manufacturing workers.
“As we look to build back better, we should do so using American-made goods and products to ensure we’re maximizing the job creating potential of our investments. TheBlueGreen Alliance is proud that this change has been made.”
