ABSTRACT
The author supports the provision of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, which requires the U.S. federal government to use American material for its infrastructure projects. He argues that the Buy American laws have been in place for decades and are consistent with the international trade commitments of the U.S. He asserts that despite the existence of Buy America provision at many federal agencies, there has been a weak enforcement process with little transparency.
