Senate Panel to Debate US Made Flag Proposal

Posted:

LANSING, Mich. (AP) - A Michigan Republican lawmaker wants to ensure that city and county government buildings fly flags that have been manufactured in the United States.
    
Republican Senator Roger Kahn of Saginaw has introduced a bill that would prohibit local units of governments from flying an American or state of Michigan flag if it wasn't made in the U.S. The bill would also affect school districts, community college districts and public libraries.
    
The bill is expected to be come before the Senate Local Government and Elections Committee on Wednesday.
    
Governor Rick Snyder signed a bill last year that requires that U.S. and state flags purchased, displayed or resold by the state government to be manufactured domestically. Local governments are exempt from current law.
