WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Rep. Grace Meng (D-NY) introduced legislation to create the first ever U.S. government website through which consumers can find information about products that are made in America. The “MadeInAmerica.gov Act,” H.R. 4970, would require the United States Department of Commerce to create and maintain a MadeInAmerica.gov website listing American-made products.
“It is time that the federal government did more for American businesses and American workers,” said Rep. Meng. “Consumers who wish to know which products are made in America should have a trustworthy, easy-to-use resource, and American businesses should be provided a space in which they can easily connect consumers to products that are made in America. This legislation will promote products made in the USA, support the labor behind them, and encourage people to buy American.”
Presently, there is no U.S. government website that lists products made in America.
Meng’s legislation has been referred to the House Energy and Commerce Committee where it is awaiting further action. Bill text can be found here.
