Follow-Up on "Made in USA" Flags
Last week's July 4th articles on state legislatures requiring American flags to be "Made in the USA" generated a great deal of interest and follow-up. For example, the Political Reps Blog contains a good digest of other blogs addressing the pros and cons of such laws. I also received several e-mails on the topic.
I also learned that in 2004 Florida passed a law requiring that all classrooms in state educational institutions must display a United States flag at least 2 feet by 3 feet in size that is made in the United States.
New Jersey's Gloucester County Times also today reports on a bill pending in the New Jersey Legislature that would require any United States or State of New Jersey flag purchased with state funds be manufactured in the United States. The bill, Assembly No. 2939, passed the New Jersey General Assembly by a 79-0 vote on June 8th and is currently pending in the New Jersey Senate.
