Federal Highway Administration Reviewing "Buy American" Rules for Steel

The Federal Highway Administration is seeking comments regarding the continued need, in whole or in part, for the general waivers from Buy America for manufactured products; for ferry boat equipment; and for pig iron and processed, pelletized, and reduced iron ores. These waivers have been in effect since 1983, 1994, and 1995, respectively. The FHWA is also seeking comment on the continuing need for the FHWA's minimal use threshold (currently established at $2,500 or 1/10 of 1 percent of the total contract value, whichever is greater).

Comments must be received on or before August 9, 2013.

For the July 10, 2013, Federal Register Notice go to .pdf
