New Hampshire’s Buy America Law Keeps Taxpayer Money, Jobs in the U.S.

New Hampshire Governor Chris Sununu has signed Buy America legislation into law during a visit to AISC-member Capone Iron Corporation North Woods, Inc.'s fabrication facility in Berlin, N.H. The new regulations require the use of American contractors and products on state-funded construction projects.

"New Hampshire's Buy America law is a win for steel fabricators who have too long suffered from unfair foreign competition," said AISC Director of Government Relations and Sustainability Max Puchtel. "And beyond New England, the law signals a movement among our elected leaders to commit to spend tax dollars domestically. The American structural steel industry is ready and capable of delivering for our great steel bridges, critical infrastructure projects, and iconic skylines."

More than two dozen states have now taken action to keep American taxpayer money in America's own economy instead of sending it overseas.
