ROTTERDAM, N.Y. (WHEC) — A New York State assemblyman is calling for all American and state flags be made entirely in America.
Assemblyman Angelo Santabarbara (D-Rotterdam) has introduced legislation called the "New York State All-American Flag Act."
The act would require that all United States and New York State flags sold in the State of New York be made entirely in the U.S.A., with 100 percent American materials and using only U.S.-based labor.
Right now, U.S. law requires that flags purchased by the federal government only be made of at least 50% American materials.
