U.S. Sen. Brown on Buy America, Infrastructure Bill

McDONALD, Ohio — U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio, toured McDonald Steel Corp. and discussed what the new infrastructure bill means for the company and for workers.

The Buy America provisions will ensure American taxpayer dollars are used to purchase American-made products for all federally-funded infrastructure projects – closing loopholes and securing major investments in American-made iron, steel, and manufactured products.

“The days are gone where big and small bridges are made with Chinese steel,” says Sen. Brown.

“In the infrastructure bill there’s over $100 billion for bridges and close to $75 million for railways and that’s what we do,” says Jim Grasso, president of McDonald Steel Corp.
