CLEVELAND, Ohio (WFLA) – One lawmaker is hoping to change the way the U.S. government buys American flags.
Under current law, any American flag purchased by the government must be at least 50 percent made in the USA.
Ohio Senator Sherrod Brown is introducing the All-American Flag Act to change that.
The legislation would require flags purchased by the government to be 100 percent made in the USA.
Producers would also only be allowed to use American made materials.
