AISI comments on President's signing of "Buy American, Hire American"

April 18, 2017 - Thomas J. Gibson, president and CEO of the American Iron and Steel Institute, said that the “Buy American” portion of the president’s “Buy American, Hire American” executive order, expected to be signed April 18, is a positive step in ensuring full enforcement of existing Buy America laws and ensuring the steel industry remains competitive. Gibson commented:

“Strong Buy America domestic procurement preferences for federally funded infrastructure projects are vital to the health of the domestic steel industry, and have helped create manufacturing jobs and build American infrastructure. The foundation of a strong Buy America program is the longstanding requirement that all iron and steel-making processes occur in the U.S. for a product to be Buy America compliant – from the actual steel production to the finishing processes.  This ‘melted and poured’ standard has been successfully applied since 1983 and must continue to be the standard used in federal Buy America rules for steel procurement.  We applaud President Trump for affirming his commitment to full and effective enforcement of our Buy America laws, and to addressing the issue of unfairly dumped and subsidized steel, in signing this Executive Order today.”
