‘Buy American’ Act Would Threaten Bi-National Economy

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo proposed a ‘Buy American’ Act in his 2017-18 Executive Budget.  This legislation would establish a preference in all state and public authority contracts and procurements over $100,000 for bidders who agree to provide products that are manufactured in the U.S.  If implemented, it would threaten the robust trade and investment relationship New York State has with Canada.
