Congress approved, and President Obama signed into law (December 19, 2014), a bill (H.R.3979) entitled the 'Carl Levin and Howard P. 'Buck' McKeon National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2015.' It includes two 'Buy American' provisions.
 
Section 858 of the bill requires that the Secretary of Defense 'ensure that each covered contract includes a provision requiring that any photovoltaic device installed under the contract be manufactured in the United States substantially all from articles, materials, or supplies mined, produced, or manufactured in the United States, unless the head of the department or independent establishment concerned determines, on a case-by-case basis, that the inclusion of such requirement is inconsistent with the public interest or involves unreasonable costs, subject to exceptions provided in the Trade Agreements Act of 1979 (19 U.S.C. 2501 et seq.) or otherwise provided by law.'
Section 1604 directs the Secretary of Defense to develop a next-generation rocket propulsion system that enables the effective, efficient, and expedient transition from the use of non-allied space launch engines to a domestic alternative for national security space launches.' It specifies that this system 'shall ... be made in the United States' but otherwise must 'be developed using full and open competition' and 'be available for purchase by all space launch providers of the United States.'
