Congress approved the Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery (TIGER) program under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA, Public Law 111-5). Section 1605 of the ARRA specified that grants under this program are subject to Buy America rules. One of the recipients of these funds in the first round of grants (i.e., TIGER I) made in Fiscal Year 2009 was the US-395 North Spokane Corridor - Francis Ave. to Farwell Rd. Southbound project in the state of Washington, which received $35,000,000.
The HS codes monitored by the OECD Steel Committee are used to approximate the iron and steel products procured for this project.
