On September 5, 2017 the City Council of Portage, Indiana adopted an ordinance requiring that the city government purchase American-made products. It requires that for any purchases over $5,000, at least 75% of its "articles, materials or supplies mined, produced or manufactured in the United States." The ordinance also requires that every contract awarded by the city greater than $50,000 contain a provision mandating that the contractor use American-made products. An exception is provided when the cost of the American-made products is more than 6% higher than the cost of imported goods.
