CARSON CITY — A state lawmaker has requested a bill be drafted to implement a “Buy American Act” in Nevada for public works projects.
Assemblywoman Maggie Carlton, D-Las Vegas, said Monday that the idea behind the bill is to create some level of preference for bidders on state government construction projects who use American-made products and materials.
“There is some model legislation out there and it’s worth having the conversation,” she said. “There are two or three different ways of doing it and our legal staff is looking at the best option.”
