Feedback at 5:00: Should Local Governments Be Required To Buy American-Made Flags?

Posted: Updated:

Friday's Feedback at 5:00:

Finding items that are made in America can be a little tricky sometimes.

But as more Americans look to buy local, the Michigan Senate unanimously approved a bill requiring local governments to buy American-made flags and flag-holders to be placed on the graves of veterans.

A provision in the bill only would require governments to do this if the American-made flags are similar in price to foreign-made flags.

Governments that choose to buy less expensive flags not made in America would have to post that fact on their website.

What do you think? Should governments be required to buy flags made on U.S. soil?
