WEBINAR: 2012 Blueprint - Buy American

12/05/2011 - 2:00pm - 2:30pm

Recorded Monday, December 5th.

With record numbers of Americans experiencing long-term unemployment, “Buy American” standards in state contracting – which require U.S.-made goods and materials to be used in government procurement and infrastructure projects – are an easy, effective way to create jobs and breathe new life into the manufacturing industry. Combined with their popularity with the public, 2012 is poised to be a banner year for this issue. Scott Paul, Executive Director of the American Manufacturing Alliance, will discuss public opinion research, model legislation, and the other tools that can help legislators and advocates advance “Buy American” provisions in their states.
