WASHINGTON, D.C. — U.S. Department of Transportation released a statement on President Biden’s executive order ensuring that when the federal government spends taxpayer dollars they are spent on American-made goods by American workers and with American-made component parts.
“The Department of Transportation is a strong supporter of Buy American and we applaud President Biden for taking bold action today to ensure our future is made in America — and by American workers.
“The crises we face have created an opportunity to build back our economy better than before, and President Biden’s executive order will empower us to be a central force in our country’s recovery.
“We look forward to implementing President Biden’s Made in America executive order that will ensure transportation-related capital purchases, equipment, and supplies are acquired when available.
“In addition, we will also ensure that the President’s strong support of the Jones Act is realized so that only U.S.-flag vessels carry cargo between U.S. ports.
“With these goals in mind, the Department stands ready to help President Biden create good-paying, union jobs, and strengthen the middle class.”
