Senator Funke's Made in America Plan

  • Require a Made in America preference for all iron and steel purchased for State projects
  • Require State Parks to source most products from American Companies
  • Require that any American Flag purchased by the New York State government must be made in the United States of America.

I wanted to give you an update on some issues I have been working on in Albany that will have a positive impact right here in the 55th Senate District. Recent statistics released by United Van Lines show that nearly 66% of all rentals last year were outbound, leaving New York State. This trend was particularly strong among our young people.

The primary reason we are losing population is that there are not enough jobs in Upstate New York. That is why I have been working on several pieces of legislation to require items purchased with taxpayer dollars to be made right here in our country.

There is no valid reason that tax dollars paid by hard working residents of Ontario County should be used to purchase any item that does not directly support American workers and American jobs!

I need your help to make my “Made in America Plan” a reality. Please clickon the button below to sign my petition and join the fight!
