The New Jersey Assembly has given final legislative approval to measures requiring state agencies and public colleges to use materials made in the U.S. in the fulfillment of contracts.
But Assemblyman Jon Bramnick, minority leader, said Republicans believe “Made in America” bills set a dangerous policy and will result in the loss of jobs.
“We can’t afford in an economy that is somewhat fragile in New Jersey to do anything except promote our companies, and some of those are international companies.”
It’s now up to Gov. Chris Christie to decide whether to sign the bills into law.
