American Recovery and Reinvestment Act and the Buy American Act
http://www.totousa.com/Portals/0/Ima...s/BAA-logo.gifThe intent of the AMERICAN RECOVERY AND REINVESTMENT ACT (ARRA) that President Obama signed into law on February 17, 2009 is to reinvigorate our economy with new projects that put Americans back to work. There is also a provision in the act that invokes the BUY AMERICAN ACT, which will help bring more manufacturers into the process and thus compound the economic boost by allowing more industries to support new projects.
