Public procurement localisation
On May 28, 2013, Governor Rick Perry of the state of Texas signed into law a bill (HB 4) providing funding for water projects. One provision in the bill requires that contracts "include a requirement that iron and steel products and manufactured goods used in the project be produced in the United States." This requirement may be waived when products are not available in sufficient quantities, readily available, of a satisfactory quality, or "the use of such products or goods will increase the total cost of the project by more than 20 percent."
