Brown is the Author of Legislation That Would Protect Domestic Jobs and America’s National Security by Restoring Requirement that Military Steel be 100 Percent Made in America; Cleveland’s ArcelorMittal and Cliffs Natural Resources, Marion’s Nucor All Involved in Production of Armor Plate

Sherrod Brown (D-OH), the author of legislation to ensure that armor plate for America’s military is truly “made in America,” today applauded a move from the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) that restores a 35-year rule requiring that steel purchased by the U.S. military be 100 percent domestically produced. The rule, originally overturned by DoD in 2009, requires armor plate steel to be both melted and finished in the United States. Several Ohio companies, including Cleveland’s ArcelorMittal and Cliffs Natural Resources and Marion’s Nucor, are involved in the production of Armor plate.
When Sonja Zozula and Jerry Anderson founded LightSaver Technologies in 2009, everyone told them they should make their emergency lights for homeowners in China.

American manufacturing is like apple pie to American voters: we love it and want more of it regardless of our politics, race, gender, income, or hometown. If you live in a swing state like Ohio, you already know that, because both presidential candidates have flooded the airwaves with ads labeling the other guy as the "outsourcer-in-chief."
At a time when all eyes seem directed at Washington for job creation solutions, businesses and state governments have been quietly taking the lead.
