Cost of House Bill H.R. 113
In-Depth: Sponsoring Rep. Cheri Bustos (D-IL) reintroduced this bill from the 115h Congress to require the federal government to only buy U.S. flags made entirely in America:
“When a veteran expressed his concern to me about American flags made overseas, I worked across the aisle to require the Defense Department to buy American-made flags. I hear time and again that our veterans are disappointed that tax dollars are buying American flags in countries like China. As we head into this Fourth of July weekend, I’m proud to honor our veterans by introducing this bipartisan bill to ensure all American flags purchased with federal tax dollars are made here in America.”
This bill's 116th Congress reintroduction has 18 cosponsors, including 17 Democrats and one Republican. In the 115th Congress, this legislation passed the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee on a voice vote and had the support of 36 bipartisan cosponsors, including 32 Democrats and four Republicans.
