ANNOUNCED AS TEMPORARYNo
On June 10, 2014 the president signed into law the 'Water Resources Development Act' (S.601, now Public Law 113-121). The bill authorizes the Army Corps of Engineers to contract for and build water-development and other construction projects around the United States. Prior to passing the bill as a whole, the Senate approved by a vote of 60-36 an amendment requiring the use of American iron, steel, and manufactured goods exclusively for the construction, alteration, maintenance, or repair of any project authorized under the legislation. The only exceptions to the mandatory Buy American requirement is if U.S.-sourced goods are unavailable, or would increase the cost of the project overall by more than 25% or, if it is in the national interest to waive the requirement for any specific project.
