Washington, DC – February 15, 2011 - Today, Congressman Bruce Braley (IA-01) introduced an amendment that would force offices in the Legislative branch to buy American-made products when using taxpayer funds. Rep. Braley offered the “Buy American” amendment to the Republican budget that is being debated and voted on this week.   

“Every day, I hear members in the House chamber talk about supporting American workers and the products they make. This amendment makes us put our money where our mouth is,” said Rep. Braley.

The non-partisan Congressional Budget Office estimates that there will be no additional costs from this amendment.
