“Buy America” Steel Requirements Increases Through Trump Executive Order

On July 15, 2019, President Trump signed an executive order to increase “Buy American” steel requirements for jobs using federal funding.  Previous “Buy American” regulations required that 50% of the steel and iron used in federal contracts be sourced from US producers.  The new order increases that requirement from 50% to 95%.
