From The Center Square –
Missouri U.S. Sen. Josh Hawley has introduced a bill that would require more than 50% of the value of a product to be produced in the U.S. for it to be sold in the U.S. by 2025.
Instituting a local content requirement on manufactured goods is among provisions in Hawley’s proposed Make in America to Sell in America Act, which he says will boost U.S. manufacturing and secure the nation’s supply chains – a need illustrated by “Joe Biden’s supply chain crisis.”
“Shelves are empty.
