New York State -

Governor Cuomo makes the "New York Buy American" Act permanent.

The governor says this act will protect Americans and grow New York jobs.

Manufacturing makes up five percent of the state's economy. Cuomo says we need the best quality steel, concrete, and iron on infrastructure projects.

"We are building more than any state in the United States of America. No state is building what we are building here - over $250 billion in infrastructure. And we want to make sure that these projects last 100 years and to do that you have to know that steel, that concrete, that iron is top quality material and you only know that if that is made right here in the good old USA," said Cuomo.

The announcement came in earlier today, September 7th, at the Labor Day parade in New York City.
