JONES SUPPORTS BUY AMERICAN, HIRE AMERICAN INITIATIVES

Jan 26, 2017 Issues: Economy and Jobs

WASHINGTON, DC – Last week, Congressman Walter B. Jones (NC-3) and 16 of his colleagues wrote to President Donald J. Trump, expressing their full support for “Buy American, Hire American” policy. These programs and initiatives would stipulate that federally funded transportation and infrastructure resources be produced in the United States.

“It is unbelievable how many taxpayer funded projects are constructed using foreign-made products,” said Congressman Jones. “It is time we support our own industries and return these opportunities to American workers.”

The full letter is attached.
