AAM Statement on President Biden’s “Made in America” Executive Order

Washington, D.C. – The White House announced on Monday that President Joe Biden will issue an Executive Order designed to strengthen Buy America, with the goal of ensuring that “our future is made in all of America by all of America’s workers.”

Alliance for American Manufacturing President Scott Paul said:

“We strongly support efforts to strengthen Buy America and other domestic content preference policies, and we are pleased that the president is initiating a process in the first week of the new administration to do so.

“It’s essential to close loopholes, reduce waivers, broaden coverage to more federal spending and more manufactured products, and strengthen origin standards for determining whether a product is produced in the United States. The law should mean what it says: an American product should be truly Made in America. 

“We look forward to working with the administration and Congress to quickly make real progress, without delay. Stronger domestic content preference policies and a sizable new investment in infrastructure and clean energy will spur factory job creation and new investment in America.” 

Scott Paul is available for interviews.
