Florida: Takes effect: July 1, 2015; Law: Jan. 1, 2016

TALLAHASSEE | Florida marched one step closer Friday to requiring American and state flags flying at government buildings to be sewn in the United States with home-grown materials.

The House voted 110-2 to approve a measure (HB 225) called the “All-American Flag Act.” The bill, which awaits Senate action, would require U.S. and Florida flags purchased by governments in Florida after Jan. 1, 2016 to be made from materials grown, produced and manufactured in the United States.

Rep. Bob Cortes, R-Altamonte Springs, said the bill sends a message that “here in Florida, we don’t want the living representations of our state and country to be made overseas.”
