Statement of New York State AFL-CIO President Mario Cilento on “Buy American”

We thank Senate Independent Democratic Conference Leader Jeff Klein and Sen. Diane Savino for their commitment to “Buy American” and for recognizing this initiative provides a clear path to job creation.

Buy American legislation has been a top priority of the Labor Movement. Not only will it stimulate manufacturing and produce good jobs, it will ensure state taxpayer dollars are used first and foremost for the benefit of New York State’s economy.
