A recent article published by Roads and Bridges magazine reports that the Office of Management and Budget is working to broaden the scope of the Buy America and Buy American Acts.  Some of these efforts were intended by the 2021 Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA).  But the latest effort goes beyond the intended scope of the IIJA by expanding application from steel and iron to lumber, drywall, glass, and more.  As the Biden Administration tries to close a purported “giant loophole” in domestic preferences, contractors may have to pay the price.  Previously, I’ve written about the Build America, Buy America provisions in the IIJA.  Although the White House and OMB assert that waivers may be granted, historically they are few and far between.
