Most of us do our best to Buy American, and according to a recent Siena poll most New Yorker's want our state government to do the same thing. Polling shows that four out of five voters favor spending state and federal tax dollars on American-made goods whenever possible.

Gov. Cuomo recently introduced strong "Buy American" requirements to help create good paying jobs and keep our tax dollars here at home. Now we need our legislators to support it and make it a reality.

It makes sense to support companies that invest in their U.S. operations, modernize plants to make them safer and more efficient, and create good jobs for American workers. It makes no sense for our state government to send our hard-earned tax dollars overseas where many foreign companies don't adhere to labor or environmental standards required of American and New York manufactures.
