WASHINGTON D.C. - Congressman Frank Mrvan commends the Biden-Harris for administration for the "Buy American" executive order announced earlier this week and for prioritizing the strengthening and implementation of Buy American requirements in the beginning days of their administration.  The Congressman says their action shows how important it is to require that American taxpayer dollars support American labor and American materials at every opportunity and that it's essential for our national economy and our national security that we prioritize the use of American products and our workforce.  

Mrvan says that he will continue to ensure that Buy American requirements are strengthened and enhanced in potential infrastructure and appropriation legislation that is considered before the U.S. House of Representatives.

United Steelworkers District 7 Director, Mike Millsap, says that all of our infrastructure and military needs should be made with American steel by American workers and he applauds the Buy American executive orders by the current administration.

Randy Palmateer, Business Manager of the Northwestern Indiana Building and Construction Trades Council, says that he knows that American workers can compete and support our national economy when given a fair opportunity.
