BILL NUMBER:S6580

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the executive law and the general
business law, in relation to enacting the "American made flag act of
2014"

PURPOSE:

To ensure that all American flags purchased for use in the State of
New York are manufactured in the United States of America.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

Section one amends section 403 of the executive law to require that
all American flags purchased for display in State buildings are 100 %
made in the United States of America.

Section two creates Article 12-C of the general business law to
prohibit the selling of any American flags not made in the United
States of America.

Section three sets the enacting date.

JUSTIFICATION:

The American Flag is one of the most universally recognized symbols
representing the United States and the principles and freedoms upon
which it was founded. It is estimated that New York spends nearly $3.6
million dollars every year on United States flags produced in other
countries. This bill would ensure that all United States flags for
sale in New York State are made in the United States and that all
United States flags purchased by New York State are, likewise, made in
the United States.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:

This is a new bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:

To be determined.

EFFECTIVE DATE:

This act shall take effect on the one hundred eightieth day after it
shall have become a law.
