The Build America, Buy America (BABA) Act requires that all of the iron, steel, manufactured products, and construction materials used in infrastructure projects be produced in the United States.
BABA builds upon previous Made in America policies to help bolster America's industrial base, protect our national security, and support high-paying jobs.
