Massachusetts lawmakers are currently considering legislation that would apply "Buy America" preferences to taxpayer-funded construction projects costing over $500,000. This is important, because Massachusetts tax dollars are often sent overseas instead of being reinvested back into local workers, manufacturers, and communities.
The federal government and at least 38 states have Buy America requirements on the books. It's time for Massachusetts to join them!
Tell your Massachusetts lawmakers to support S. 2546, An Act to Promote American Manufacturing!
