“American Jobs for American Workers”
The House of Representatives approved the measure this week as part of a $825 billion bill to kickstart the U.S. economy. In the House version of the bill, the "Buy American" measure would require all public works projects funded by the stimulus package to use only U.S.-made iron and steel. European steelmakers object, saying that would violate U.S. commitments under the World Trade Organization's government procurement pact.
