A Saginaw County lawmaker wants to make sure old glory is made in the U.S.A.
Republican Sen. Roger Kahn introduced a bill that would prohibit local governments from flying an American or state of Michigan flag if it wasn't made in the United States.
Senate Bill 110
would also affect school districts, community colleges and public libraries. The issue is expected to be brought before the Senate Local Government and Elections Committee on Wednesday.
Gov. 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.
