At today's Labor Day Parade in New York City, Governor Andrew M. Cuomo announced he will advance legislation to make the "New York Buy American" Act permanent. The "Buy American" law requires all structural steel and structural iron used in all state road and bridge construction projects with contracts worth more than $1 million to be made in America. The current law is set to expire April 2020, and making this law permanent will build on the State's commitment to investing in New York's infrastructure and workforce, while guaranteeing protection and dignity for workers.
