Maloney Applauds Biden Administration’s Push to Bolster Manufacturing and Create Jobs

Washington, D.C.Representative Sean Patrick Maloney (NY-18) applauds the Biden Administration’s Made in America Executive Order, which is designed to increase investments in American manufacturing and create good-paying, meaningful jobs. The plan, released this morning and signed this afternoon, will ensure taxpayer dollars and federal spending goes to American companies, bolstering our economy during this economic crisis.

Representative Sean Patrick Maloney released the following statement:

“It is vital that our recovery from this health and economic crisis focuses on growing our manufacturing sector and creating jobs right here in New York. I’m encouraged to see the Biden Administration working to improve our Buy America standards so our manufacturers and our workers can be partners in driving our recovery. This is the whole-of-government approach we need,” said Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney.

This Executive Order will close loopholes in current Buy America laws, ensuring domestic goods receive preference in federal purchasing; increase oversight of waivers that create potential loopholes in Buy America laws; direct agencies to partner with the Manufacturing Extension Partnership — a national network that supports American manufacturers — to help government agencies build relationships with domestic manufacturers; and bolster oversight of this domestic manufacturing network program.

As the country faces the continued health and economic crisis caused by the coronavirus, this new focus on American manufacturing of critical supply chains will support COVID-19 recovery across the country, and create jobs for those who are out of work.
