NY State Officials Announce “Buy American” Steel, Iron Agreement

WSTM reports that New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and state legislative leaders announced “an agreement to implement the purchase of American-made steel and iron products by state entities. The ‘Buy American’ legislation requires the Department of Transportation, Thruway Authority, Bridge Authority, Metropolitan Transportation Authority [and other agencies] to provide a contract provision mandating all surface road and bridge projects include use of American-made structural iron and steel unless it can be well argued that using such products in a particular project should be exempted.” (Link inserted.)
